There are two induction events for postgraduate research students (October and January). If you are a new student, you must attend one of these sessions.

The MVLS Graduate School will send you an email invite to sign-up for an induction session. 

Remember to register and enrol on to your PhD programme so you receive information on induction and other events happening at the start of term

Before you arrive

You have accepted your offer! What should you do now?

To give you plenty of time to get organised, the MVLS Graduate School's New Student Information page gathers a wide range of helpful resources and important information.

The University's information for getting started with us in Glasgow is also a great guide.

International Students can email the Support Welcome Team at:, who are on hand to answer any questions you have about coming to Glasgow and settling in. 


You must fully register at the beginning of your studies, and at the start of each academic year until your thesis submission date. This means both academically and financially. If you don't, you can't enrol on any skills training courses and will have limited access to university systems.
