Welcome from the Director of PGT, Associate Professor Sam North

You are about to embark on a period of intense study at one of the country’s leading research institutions and we want you to be able to get the most from the experience from the outset. One year (or two years part-time) goes past quickly, and the more you know about what’s available to you, and how to access and use the services provided, the quicker you will be able to concentrate on the important part: the pleasure to be taken in your module choices within your individual Departments. To this end we have arranged a College-wide induction meeting to include students subscribing to all the Departments in the College of Humanities. This event will contain important information whatever your subject, and it allows the different Departments to concentrate on the details of your individual MAs during their own induction meetings later in the week. You are, of course, focused on your particular MA, but please do attend this College-wide induction if you can. It will take place on Thursday September 16th, from 10 a.m - 12.00 p.m. I look forward to seeing you there, at the start of what we recognise is a year of specific importance for you all – the cohort of 2021-2022.

Important notice: We will be updating this page regularly as new details of induction and welcome activities are released. We're also working within Government guidelines meaning information and activities may change as that guidance changes as well. Please ensure you check back here frequently for updates.

We hope you are looking forward to commencing your studies on a taught Masters with us in September. To help you settle into the university and prepare you for your studies we have arranged welcome and academic induction activities for you.
