Welcome event for all new doctoral researchers

Wednesday 23 October, 14.00-15.00
Madejski lecture theatre, Agriculture

An essential event for new doctoral research students, this will provide you with an introduction to what you need to know about academic life during your time at Reading, including information on:

  • What you can expect from the University Graduate School and what we will expect from you
  • Training requirements
  • Career development
  • Cross-campus personal development events

This is also an opportunity for you to meet other new doctoral researchers.

Attendance is highly recommended.
