Master's or PhD students
If you are a new international PhD or master's (thesis-based), student, please check in at the International Office Reception upon your arrival. Bring your passport and visa with you.
An appointment will be arranged for you to meet with a member of the International Student Support Team who will cover arrival information, assist with completing your enrolment, and answer any questions you may have at that time. You will have an opportunity to sign up for the next PhD/Master by Thesis Welcome session. These sessions are run twice a month.
