Postgraduate Induction #3

What is it about?

Postgraduate Induction is an opportunity for all new postgraduates to hear about how the Graduate School can support them with training and development opportunities. It also offers a great chance to meet other new postgraduates and establish rapport with senior postgraduates over some light refreshments.

Out third mini postgraduate induction

Our third mini induction for new postgraduates was held on 30 August 2019. This induction was for postgraduate students who were not able to attend the previous induction in May or have joined the University thereafter.

The induction featured welcome talks and presentations by senior staff from the Graduate School which introduced a range of support services, training programmes, public engagements and activities for postgraduates. It also featured an introductory talk about Postgraduate Students’ Network (PGSN) by Olaoluwa Duro-Bello (fondly known as Ola), Students’ Association (SA) Postgraduate Officer. If you would like to find out more about PGSN, please follow and/or get in touch via their Facebook platform or email

The new postgraduates later joined the rest of the postgraduate community in our fourth Coffee & Cake session of this year. This casual gathering session was indeed an ideal meeting platform for all postgraduates on campus whilst enjoying some free refreshments.

Get in touch

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.

Join us next time

We will have our annual Postgraduate Welcome Programme on 30 September 2019. This programme aims to introduce the scope of the Graduate School to the postgraduate community at the University, in terms of support and development opportunities. It will be a good opportunity for new postgraduates to assimilate into the postgraduate community on campus and hit the ground running, socially and academically.

The full details will be announced soon. So stay tuned!
