Are you starting your doctorate at Sussex this Spring? Join us for the Doctoral School welcome event and hear from the key support services around the University who will help you throughout your PhD journey. The session is designed to be an informal way to find out more about the support available and a chance to ask questions and get to know teams and peers.

After hearing some short introductions, there will be a chance to chat to staff from key services around campus, over food and refreshments - as well as get a chance to get to know other new researchers.

Please note that this event is scheduled to take place in-person on campus, but this will be dependent on Covid guidelines in January.

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.

Booking is essential so please sign up below, we look forward to welcoming you in January!
