Registration and Induction

Information on the registration process, which must be done through the University Registry, may be found at the Registry's page on registration.

An induction session is organised by the Graduate School of Arts and Humanities for the benefit of all new research postgraduate students in the College. Details about the venue and the date and time of the event (which takes place normally near the end of September each year) are sent by e-mail to students. The session includes a short presentation about the Graduate School, its various activities, and its research resources, such as postgraduate study space; this is followed by an informal reception. Please visit the the Graduate School's information for staff and students for further details on important regulations, such as the Ethics Policy and Information.

In addition to the above event, the School of Humanities hosts, normally at the beginning of the academic session, a further induction-session in the form of a welcome-party. This gives the opportunity to new and continuing postgraduates (both taught and research) in the School to meet with each other and with members of staff in an informal fashion, and to find out more about the facilities available and about the School's research culture.

Monitoring of progress

The Subject of Classics operates a system of supervisory panels for each research student; these panels comprise the main supervisor, who has prime responsibility for the student, and two associate supervisors normally from the Subject itself. 

Annual progress review

All research students are required to fulfil specific College requirements to progress from one year to the next. An annual Progress Review for each student is carried out in April/May of each academic year, and a report must be submitted to the Classics Postgraduate Convener (Professor Catherine Steel) and then to the School Postgraduate Administrator.   The various annual progress review forms are available from the College of Arts & Humanities Moodle page.
