New students' welcome

Postgraduate students

Taught postgraduate students are required to be in attendance over the summer period.

Postgraduate research students may start at the beginning of any calendar month and are not ruled by the teaching term dates. However, the availability of your supervisor, plus some services and academic activities, may be reduced outside these dates. Postgraduate researchers are entitled to 30 days annual leave, plus bank holidays, per year and this should be arranged in consultation with your supervisor.
