For those of you who can't join our Welcome Week events on campus, for whatever reason, this online session combines the welcome talks with a mixed-discipline Starting Your Doctorate panel to help you get started on your PhD journey.

You will be welcomed by Prof Jeremy Niven, Director of the Doctoral School, and hear short presentations from the Researcher Development Programme, the Library, the Careers & Employability Centre, the Student Life Centre, the Students' Union and the Research Hive Scholars. There'll also be information for new international researchers.

Then chat with other new researchers and put your questions to a panel of current PGRs and Directors of Doctoral Studies from different Schools at Sussex.

Sign up below and the link to join will be emailed to your Sussex or BSMS email address the day before the session.
