Doctoral School Welcome
for Newly Arrived Research Students

Doctoral School Welcome for New Arrived Research Students

The Doctoral School offers a welcome event at the beginning of Term 2 for research students who arrived after September.

This year the event took place online on Monday 17th January and includeed key information to help new students get started on their journey as a UCL Postgraduate Research Student (PGR).

The event was a great opportunity for attenders to hear from and ask questions to Professor David Bogle, Pro-Vice-Provost Doctoral School and Elizabeth Halton, Deputy Director of the Doctoral School. Following a short introduction and Q&A, students could meet a representative from our Visa Compliance Office. They could also hear from our PGR student panel, chaired by Professor Jill Norman – they were ready to answer questions about postgraduate research experience at UCL.
