Welcome to PGR at Bradford

We are a friendly and dedicated community of researchers

 

This page is for our Post-graduate Researchers (PGR) who are just arriving 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 doctoral-level study and begin your expert skills development.

 

 

Induction February 2020

Key Information

 

  • Compulsory induction events for all new PG Researchers (even if you have studied at Bradford in the past) occur during your 1st and 3rd weeks and are indicated. PGR is very different to studying other degrees at lower levels, so these must be attended.

 

  • The Training Needs Analysis event in the first week 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.

 

  • There is no need to book, simply turn up at the room as per the schedule.

 

  • Find The PGR Lounge and any other buildings on campus where induction events are taking place using its campus map number. Just scroll down a little after clicking the link to download the map.
