‌The Research Student Almanac

The Research Student Almanac gathers together all talks, events, training sessions, workshops and social meetings, extends a very warm welcome to our postgraduates, staff and, in many cases, the wider public, and allows for advance planning in terms of those sessions that you wish to attend. Visit the Almanac webpage to download the latest version.

Weekly Doctoral College Online Hangouts (every Tuesday lunchtime)

Weekly online hangouts are scheduled throughout the year in response to a request received from PGR students for a space to meet virtually to discuss a particular topic, or to simply share their thoughts and offer advice. Therefore, these sessions are generally interactive and are facilitated by the Doctoral College. Webinars are accessed via canvas and do not require an advanced booking. The webinar opens 15 minutes before the session, please do  not try to enter before then.
