Upcoming Events

Induction #1

This session aims to introduce the scope of the Graduate School to the postgraduate community at UNM, in terms of support and development opportunities. It will be a good opportunity for new postgraduate students to assimilate into the postgraduate community and hit the ground running, socially and academically.

This session is scheduled of 22 February 2019 at 2pm to 3pm in H1B13. It is intended for new postgraduate students, but current postgraduate students are also welcome.

Coffee & Cake Session #1

This is a platform for postgraduate students to get together and mingle among themselves. It aims to connect postgraduate students with one another in a friendly environment. Postgraduate students may take this opportunity to temporarily get away from their work and catch up with fellow postgraduate students before returning to their routine with a refreshed mind.

The first Coffee & Cake session of this year is scheduled for 22 February 2019 at 3pm to 4pm in H1B14. All postgraduate students are welcome!
