‌‌‌‌‌The aim of University induction activities is to introduce you to the range of University services which are available to postgraduate students, as well as to provide you with essential information about registration. It is also an opportunity to meet your fellow students and some of the staff in the University with responsibility for postgraduate studies. In addition to offering you a warm welcome, we hope that induction will answer many of the questions that you may have about what you can expect, and what will be expected of you, as a postgraduate student here. In addition to the University’s induction activities, you will also have induction meetings within your academic department.

All new full-time postgraduate students are required to attend Postgraduate Induction.

New part-time postgraduate students are very welcome to attend as well, but their attendance is not compulsory.
