Welcome to the research degrees programme and to the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. We want you to enjoy your time with us and to be successful in your studies.
The faculty's Research Student Handbook (updated each year) explains the procedures and timelines that you need to follow as you progress through your studies. It also tells you who are your key contacts and includes information on training and development opportunities.
Your Director of Studies and supervisory team provide the mainstay of guidance and support for your research programme.
The faculty’s Postgraduate Research Tutor team are also here to help and support you. The tutors monitor and keep records of your progress, liaise between supervisors, students and the University Research Degrees Committee (RDC), and can also provide information on regulations and training. They are available to talk about any problems that cannot be dealt with by your supervisor.
The faculty’s Research Administrator supports the Postgraduate Research Tutor team and can be contacted for anything relating to the administration of our progress throughout your programme. You will also hear from her regularly about events and issues that you need to be aware of.
I hope you have an excellent time here and wish you success with your research.
