Inductions and registration, MVLS Graduate School


There are two induction events for postgraduate research students (October and February). 

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. We will advise you shortly of the plans for PGR Induction 2020/21.

Next Induction: 
Early October 2020


You must register at the start of each academic year until your thesis submission date.

Having difficulty registering for the current academic year? Please contact the MVLS Graduate School stating your name and student ID number.

Following the hand in of your thesis, you can enter 'Thesis Pending' status if necessary. There is a set fee. Only one payment is due, even if your thesis pending year overlaps two academic years.
