This handbook will introduce you to a number of important ways that the department organises postgraduate research. These are based on agreed departmental practice as well as University and national guidelines. It is designed for use by current and prospective students as well as members of staff.

This handbook supplements the information available on the Graduate School's website for current students. This is the key University website for all students taking research degrees at Warwick. All current students are expected to be familiar with it.

Students should consult two other documents outlining university regulations governing research degrees:

*The Guidelines on the Supervision and Monitoring of Research Degree Students

*The Guide to Examinations for Higher Degrees by Research

All of these documents are all available for downloading from the Graduate School website. It is the responsibility of research students to be familiar with the guidelines and regulations governing their degree.
