Make a successful start to your doctorate by attending this panel discussion, developed to prepare you for the journey ahead. The panel will include current doctoral researchers and Directors of Doctoral Studies from across our departments.

Issues such as managing your research, first-year milestones, working with your supervisor, training and development, and dealing with challenges will be discussed, and audience questions will also be taken.

A number of Covid safety measures will be in place across the University, including sanitiser stations, track and trace QR codes, and lanyards to indicate if you prefer greater social distancing. There is an expectation that face masks will be worn in teaching spaces and crowded spaces across campus. Please be considerate of your fellow researchers, who may feel less comfortable about returning to in-person activities.
