Dear Research Student,

Congratulations on joining the University of Portsmouth to complete your research degree, we hope you are looking forward to starting with us in February. This e-mail is to invite you to attend the university-wide 'Getting started with your research' event on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th February, 2018. This year the event will take place in the iconic Portsmouth Guildhall.

Please find below a full programme for the two day event. You must sign-up to attend both days (DAY 1 & DAY 2) and bring your tickets with you either printed or on your mobile device so we can register you as attended.

This two day event is compulsory for all new postgraduate research degree students (PGRs) so please make every effort to attend.

 This is a very important event for you as it:

  • Introduces you to the knowledge, resources and software necessary to manage your research training

  • Introduces you to members of staff who will be important to you as a PGR at the University of Portsmouth

  • Gives you an opportunity to meet other PGRs from across the University

  • Provides you with an overview of the doctoral process and how best to manage it

  • Highlights the support you will receive as a PGR

Lunch will be provided on both days so if you have any dietary needs or allergies please specify on registration or you can contact us at: graduate.school@port.ac.uk.
