WRDTP Welcome Event 2021
All new PhD Social Sciences doctoral researchers from the Universities of Bradford, Hull, Leeds, Manchester Metropolitan, Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam and York are warmly invited to attend the White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership Welcome Event taking place on the 20th October 2021.
This year’s Welcome Event will be delivered online AND face-to-face, with an exciting programme of online content to introduce you to PhD life and the benefits of studying within one of the White Rose Doctoral Partnership institutions, and an institutional face-to-face networking opportunity in the afternoon.
A schedule of online events can be found below.
Details of the face-to-face networking meetings can be found below. We will also be running an online networking session on the 21st for those who are unable to travel to a face-to-face event.
This is a compulsory event for ESRC funded PhD students (i.e. PhD students who are starting their 1st year of study in the academic year 2021/22). It is also open to all non-ESRC funded PhD students within the White Rose Universities.
Students beginning their Masters in Social Science Research in the academic year 2019/2020 are welcome to attend, studies permitting.
If you attended the WRDTP Welcome Event whilst completing your MA Social Science Research degree during academic year 2020/2021 please note you do not have to attend this event again but please inform the WRDTP office via firstname.lastname@example.org that you will not be attending
