The University's Induction Programme for research students aims to provide you with the information and support you require to feel, and become, an important part of the University. The emphasis is on an integrated and co-ordinated activity between Schools, Departments and Students.
As from Session 2009/10, all research degree students should ensure their compliance with the University's approved "Ten Instances of Expected Contact", regardless of mode of study. Adherence to this list will help to ensure regular and satisfactory progress with your research degree.
The Induction Programme is aimed at helping you make the following adjustments:
• Academic - more demanding learning and assessment challenges;
• Geographic - new campus, accommodation and culture;
• Administrative - dealing with enrolment and financial issues;
• Personal - dealing with the loss of old networks and making new friends.
The advice we give has been split up into chunks to help you access the information you require, when you require it.
