Starting your research
Starting a new research degree can feel like a big step but we'll help you through the early days with information and support.
When you start your research degree, you can expect to go through induction and registration. The arrangements for induction will vary between Faculties and Schools. You'll find some information on the following pages but you should also check with your Faculty/School for further information and advice.
As a new postgraduate researcher, you will be invited to a series of workshops and events to welcome and introduce you to the University, your fellow researchers and the resources available to help you.
With so much to do in the first weeks, it can be difficult to know what to do first to start your research. These pages will guide you through the process, giving you the information, contacts and advice to make sure you have the best start
Research at the University of Leeds is conducted according to the principles of academic excellence, community, integrity, inclusiveness and professionalism.
Module enrolment for postgraduate researchers
As a postgraduate researcher, you can study taught modules in addition to your research if they are useful for your training and are approved by your supervisor.
Centrally funded postgraduate maintenance payments
If you receive a centrally-funded scholarship administered by the Postgraduate Scholarships Office, then details of your payments will be outlined in your scholarship award or renewal letter.
