Welcome Resources

Welcome to the University of Warwick!

Starting your PhD journey

The start of your PhD journey is an exciting time, so in order to make yours as smooth as possible, we have compiled some vital information for you below. Just click through the tabs to learn more – from essential information, to an overview of different campus services, to welcome events designed specifically for postgraduate researchers.

Any questions?

If you have a question about your PhD that you have not been able to find an answer to, please reach out to us.

There's a range of welcome events for postgraduate researchers this year - by the Doctoral College, by the university as a whole, and by individual departments.

Researcher Development Online

The Researcher Development programme is provided by the Doctoral College to help you get the best out of your time at Warwick and the best out of yourself. The programme covers all disciplines and stages of research, including writing, research methods, productivity & skills, PhD in second language series, wellbeing and support for your career. Thinking about your professional development allows you to source the support and training you need, when you need it. Search for sessions aimed at early stages of PhD.

Join our RDO Teams channel, where we also publicise any research related events that we hear about.

Welcome Week

From 22th September to 2nd October, the University of Warwick organises a Welcome Week for all incoming students.

Departmental events

Individual departments often host welcome events as well. Check your department website to find out what they have planned.
