What to expect during induction

We are a small and friendly community and you can expect a very warm welcome from everyone in the Department.

There are four key induction events in Education Studies:

Thursday 28 September, 10:00 – 16:00: Education Studies Community Day

This event is led by Cheryl and Sally (the Student Experience Team). It is for all new students in the Department starting UG, PGT and PGR courses. It is a fantastic way to start to get to know staff and students and find out about everything that is happening in Education Studies. This event will take place in the Arts Centre Theatre.

Thursday 28 September, 16:00 – 17:30: Education Studies Social

This is for all new students and is a great way to relax, socialise and meet the Director of PGR Study, Olympia Palikara, as well as other staff in the Department supporting the PGR programme. Some of our current PhD students will also be there to welcome you to the programme. This event will take place in Chancellor’s 1 Rootes Building.

Both events on 28 September are optional but we really hope you will be able to join us.

Monday 9 October, 17:00 – 18:30: PGR Induction Session 1
Wednesday 11 October 17:00- 18:30: PGR Induction Session 2

These events will take place on Teams.

You must attend these two events where you’ll find out much more about starting a PhD or EdD in Education Studies at Warwick. Olympia Palikara will give you an overview of what to expect from your research programme, and you’ll also meet key staff in Education Studies, (e.g. some PGR supervisors, and the student engagement and experience officer), as well as hearing about University services such as the Library.
