The Graduate School plays a key role in delivering the postgraduate student experience and offers a tailored programme of professional skills training which helps to ensure personal ambitions are realised. 

In partnership with academics, students across the College and the Graduate Students’ Union, the Graduate School provides opportunity for students to meet each other at a variety of social and academic events, promoting interdisciplinary knowledge exchange, encouraging collaborations and creating supportive global research communities and peer groups.   

Cohort building aims to enhance support for research students and help improve the research environment. Research students working in cohorts can improve their understanding and gain access to professional and personal development as well as pastoral care.
