Postgraduate calendar

This calendar summarises many of the expected commitments full-time students will have over the year. Part-time students are not expected to meet all these commitments every year, and should discuss with their supervisor the participation appropriate to their part-time attendance.

An overall awareness of your commitments will enable you to plan your time effectively. These are in addition to the research that you are pursuing for your PhD.
