Registration for a PhD or MPhil represents a unique opportunity in your career to devote yourself solely to the investigation of key research questions without administration and other distractions that will, no doubt, follow later in your career. The route you have chosen requires a passion for science pursued to the highest levels together with independent thought and perseverance and you will doubtless face many challenges in response to the science that you are pursuing, but the rewards for all of this will speak for themselves.
It is our policy to communicate regularly with all staff and students on matters of importance, such as changes to legislation, rules and regulations or information relating to University or Departmental policy and procedures, as well as promoting the many training opportunities that are available to you throughout the year.
You will find all of this information now on these evolving graduate student webpages, which should aid your familiarisation with the Department, induction and learning, as well as providing you with a valuable reference throughout your studentship. Essential information is provided there about Departmental policies, procedures and guidelines, training and Researcher Development opportunities, as well as links to many other helpful websites.
If you need any further information or support please do not hesitate to ask: we are proud of the well rounded education and support we provide to our students and encourage you to take full advantage of these excellent opportunities offered to you during your time here.
