New students are encouraged to enrol in October, February, or May to support their experience within the postgraduate research community.
In addition to meeting peers across the University who are starting their research programme at the same time, there is access to a central training programme designed around the first three months of study, and targeted support aligned to each stage of the postgraduate research journey. Alternative enrolment dates may be agreed with the supervisor on an individual basis.
