Current Postgraduate Students

 

The following courses in the table are compulsory for first year PhD students. Those that are bolded are compulsory for MPhil students. 

Attendance at these courses are monitored by the Graduate Education Team, so please do ensure that you complete this compulsory element of your first year probationary period if you are a PhD student. There will be several opportunities to attend some courses over the academic year. There are multiple dates for a select number of courses. MPhil students should therefore aim to book onto one of the earlier courses, to make full use of the skills gained whilst here in the Department.

You will find all the details regarding course content in the University Training Booking System (UTBS).
