Undergraduate to Postgraduate Transitions
We’ve run focus groups with Masters and PhD students, as well as supervisors, to help improve the experience of students transitioning from undergraduate to postgraduate study. We’ve produced guides and presentations with top tips for students and supervisors to help students navigate their academic journeys. These guides can be used at inductions and training events.
We also make sure that new postgraduate students have plenty of both academic and personal support. For example, students are teamed with two academic supervisors, a tutor, and a peer mentor – usually a PhD student in their second or third year. There is also a postgraduate representative who provides a voice for all PhD students, and the Postgraduate Society has been set up by postgraduate students so that they can socialise together. All of this helps makes sure postgraduate students are supported right from the very start.
