With registration on 4 October, once the formalities had been undertaken, it was an opportunity to meet both MA and PhD students who had also registered.
Following this three Induction Days were held on 12th, 21st and 22nd October. They were very informative and endeavoured to cover all aspects of starting research together with an opportunity to see and speak to the main lecturers in various disciplines.
Some sessions were more informative than others such as academic writing and writing for research and the capabilities of the library system. The round table discussions were scheduled at the end of the day. I personally found them not so useful as I released I was out of the habit of sitting concentrating for long periods. However I am sure that I will soon become acclimatised back into student life.
