The Graduate School serves two main
purposes. Firstly, it is the main administrative office on the Hull
Campus for our research students,
supplementing the personal supervision and discipline-specific
support provided by academic departments. It provides a number
of valuable facilities for all
postgraduate students whether on taught or research programmes. Our
building houses 28 networked workstations in quiet study
areas, photocopying facilities, lockers for storage of personal
items and a common room. This makes it the perfect place in which
to meet other postgraduate students, and we are committed to
encouraging a multidisciplinary research culture in the University.
Additionally, these facilities are available 24 hours a day, 365
days a year.
From 2015-16 the Graduate School is also home to the
University's professional services in support of research and
enterprise including the Research Funding Office and Knowledge
Exchange. Administrators from these areas share kitchen and rest
space facilities on the ground floor.
The Graduate School is proactive in representing postgraduate
students within the University and in making you feel part of the
wider student community. For example, all postgraduates who enter
in September are invited to an induction event aimed at
familiarising new postgraduates with the University and the
facilities available. The Graduate School also co-ordinates the
University’s pioneering Postgraduate Training
Scheme, a programme that provides high quality research and
transferable skills training to our research students.
