Upcoming Events

Coffee & Cake Session

This is a platform for postgraduates to get together and mingle among themselves. It aims to connect postgraduates with one another in a relaxing and comfortable environment.

Postgraduates may take this opportunity to temporarily get away from their work and catch-up with fellow postgraduates before returning to their routine with a fresh mind.

The next session is scheduled for 27 September 2019 at 3pm to 4pm in H1B14.

Postgraduate Welcome Programme

This programme aims to introduce the scope of the Graduate School to the postgraduate community on campus, in terms on support and development opportunities. It is a good opportunity for new postgraduates to assimilate into the postgraduate community and hit the ground running, socially and academically.

The programme is scheduled for 30 September 2019 at 9.30am in H1B13.
