The GeoScience Graduate School (GradSchool) organises social events, lectures and conferences, and maintains crucial links between the graduate research students and academic staff. All graduate research students in the School are part of GradSchool - from Earth & Planetary Science, through Global Change to Geography and the Lived Environment.
The GeoSciences Research Training & Development (RTD), in partnership with the University's Institute for Academic Development, has developed a programme of courses to equip you with the skills necessary to meet the challenges of PhD research.
PhD students coming to the end of their research project need to be aware of the regulations for the submission of their thesis and what to expect at their viva voce exam. Before they leave, it is also important to complete any housekeeping tasks such as returning equipment.
The School of GeoSciences Postgraduate Research Conference takes place annually in early Spring. All first year research students will deliver a presentation on their research to students and staff. All second year PhD students will prepare a poster and be on hand to explain their research.
