Postgraduate Research Student Support

Postgraduate Research Student Support describes the functions carried out by the Research Student Support Team (RSST) and the Medical Sciences Graduate School (MSGS).

These two teams provide comprehensive support for the administrative processes that postgraduate research students (PGR) complete throughout their degree. They also provide a useful source of advice and guidance for PGR students during their studies.

Members of staff seeking additional guidance on PGR processes may find the Student Progress PGR Student Support page helpful.
