Researcher Inauguration events

Are you a new research student? We warmly invite you to one of our special welcome events.

The Bristol Doctoral College organises Researcher Inauguration welcome events for new postgraduate research students.

Our next Researcher Inauguration welcome event for all newly-registered postgraduate research students will take place on Thursday, 18 October from 4:30 to 6pm.

Bristol’s outstanding research profile is underpinned by the contribution of our postgraduate researchers. This special event is an opportunity to celebrate the start of your research degree and find out about the opportunities available to you throughout your time as a PGR student. You'll also receive a complimentary University of Bristol scarf!

Bristol's culture of innovation, outstanding facilities and unique opportunities will help you achieve your research ambitions. But it is also our rich and vibrant research community that makes this University a special place to do your research. This event will introduce you to this multidisciplinary community and enable you to become part of it.

The event will be held in the Great Hall in the Wills Memorial building. There will be refreshments and canapés provided throughout the event.

Please RSVP as soon as you can by reserving your free ticket.
