Course Detail

DC100 - PhD Induction

This is a one day induction event for PhD students who have recently enrolled at Queen Mary.

This day will give a brief overview of a research degree at Queen Mary and allow you to meet other students who have enrolled at a similar time to you across faculties.

This is a cross faculty event and suitable for any PhD student in their first year who has not already attended a college wide induction.

Why you should attend:
The induction day will include a number of informative sessions, providing essential information on life as a PhD student at Queen Mary University of London.
In addition to this, there will be stalls by a number of Queen Mary central services, giving new students the opportunity to meet staff from these services and find out what services are available.
Last but not least, there will be an information fair and networking opportunity to share experiences with your peers and establish contact with Queen Mary's supportive research community.

This is a Doctoral College course. For any questions please contact: doctoralcollege@qmul.ac.uk

  • Know what support and training is available to them.
  • Have met other new PhD students from across the college.
