Orientation Day for Graduate Researchers provides a welcome to all graduate researchers (PhD, Professional Doctorate, Masters by Research or MPhil candidates) who are new to the University of Melbourne or a graduate research degree.

The day introduces you to the important elements of your graduate research degree, and the comprehensive research training and professional development services available at the University. Whether you are new to the University or have been here for several months, Orientation Day will provide you with information on important issues such as thesis writing, graduate research advocacy, candidature administration, and maintaining wellbeing.

This event is also a great opportunity to meet and mingle with other graduate researchers from across the University.
