York Graduate Research School induction

I've studied at many universities and never have I felt more welcomed or supported than I have today


The York Graduate Research School induction event provides an introduction to all professional support available to you as a postgraduate researcher and gives an opportunity to celebrate the success of our current students and alumni.

If you weren't able to make the event in September 2021, you can catch up via the video presentations.
