Sometimes doing a PhD can get a little lonely, so put the books aside for an hour and come and meet others in the same boat as you! (Coffee, pastries and fruit provided.)
Free to attend, but so we know how many croissants to buy, please email if you are planning to attend.

April 2018 Graduate School Induction

Induction event for all new doctoral researchers (April 2018 starters)

Monday 23 April, 11.00-12.00
Graduate School, Old Whiteknights House, Room G09 

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 (RRDP)
• Personal development events
This is also an opportunity for you to meet other new doctoral researchers from across the University.

Attendance is highly recommended.
Please note: If you started your PhD in Autumn 2017 or January 2018, but missed the October/January Graduate School Inductions, you are welcome to attend this one.
