INDUCTION & TRAINING
Research students undergo annual induction and training with the other Health Schools and have access to our new Researcher Development Programme run by the Graduate School.
All new students have access to a critical mass of research expertise and facilities. There are seminars and annual research days, which provide opportunities for students to network and present their work, including an annual Postgraduate Research Showcase Day. All students within the School are expected to take advantage of the extensive range of training courses. Library services comprise a wide range of printed, electronic and multimedia material including the networked Medline service. The online virtual campus provides a wealth of information relating to postgraduate study. Research students have access to two postgraduate common rooms, a social room and a room with computers and desks for quiet study. All new students are issued with a Postgraduate Student Handbook, which provides a wide range of practical information on how to access these and other facilities, plus other important information relevant to your studies
A number of research studentships, funded by a mixture of central College and external (for example, Research Councils) funding, are awarded to Divisions and then advertised on the Health Schools’ Studentships website and in academic journals such as Nature and New Scientist. Funding is also available through the Graduate School.
