Welcome to PGR at Bradford

We are a friendly and dedicated community of researchers

 

This page is for our Postgraduate Researchers (PGR) who are just starting at the University.

There are induction events throughout your first weeks to help you:

  • meet other researchers within your research area and across the university
  • opt-in to taster sessions that can familiarise you with doctoral-level study and begin your expert skills development.

Key Information

  • Compulsory induction events for all new PG Researchers (even if you have studied at Bradford in the past) are shown in bold. A degree by research is very different to studying taught degrees, so these must be attended.

 

  • The Training Needs Analysis event is optional but strongly recommended, as all doctoral researchers must complete this document with their supervisory team. Each induction session is mapped to the national Researcher Development Framework to get you started.

 

  • All other training sessions are optional and designed to help you get off to a good start with your research. Follow us on Twitter for updates on training & resources.
  • Sessions are a blend of online and face-to-face. Please bookmark this page as rooms will be added along with campus map information, to help you find your way around. For those being held online, you will be sent a link direct to your university email.

 

  • Session times are UK BST.

 

  • There is no need to book, simply turn up (at the venue shown or at the virtual session) at the time shown to meet your facilitator.
