General information

New candidates should be aware of the requirements they must fulfil in the early stages of candidature. These include attending compulsory Induction workshops and, in the case of international candidates, being aware of the requirements to attend Skills for International Postgraduates (SKIP) and (in certain cases) undertake the Post Entry Language Assessment (PELA). Enrolled HDR candidates should be aware of their responsibilities, but also the services available to them throughout their candidature.
