New PGR Students

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the university to start your research journey with us. As a postgraduate research student you will have the opportunity to attend a university wide orientation in addition to your school induction. Most Orientation events are taking place as hybrid events so will be accessible for students both on campus and completing from a distance – the full timetable for this can be found here.

There is one module that you can work through before you arrive. Once you have registered you can access the remaining modules and complete your mandatory training programme through your bespoke PGR training platform on our virtual learning environment.
