This event introduces new postgraduate research students in MPLS to the Graduate School and the Graduate Academic Programme.


The MPLS Division coordinates a programme of training and development courses to support you and your research, and enable you to plan individualised training based on your needs and those of your research.

This event will provide an overview of the Division, and the support available to you. All first year DPhil students in the MPLS Division and their supervisors are welcome to attend. 


By the end of the session students will:

  • Be aware of the divisional structure, and of divisional resources available to them
  • Meet and network with fellow students


All new PGR in the MPLS Division.
