Engage with us

As a postgraduate researcher, you may start your research degree at different times of the year. We send out a welcome email upon request to new postgraduate researchers which contains information about registering on Moodle, university support services and upcoming events as well as training and other opportunities. It is important that you check your university email address regularly as we use this for all Graduate School communications.

For any queries, please email us at graduateschool@nottingham.edu.my.
