Welcome from Associate Professor Vadim Grinevich

I would like to add my words of welcome for the academic year. As the Faculty Director of the Graduate School, it is my business to put you and your doctoral experience at the heart of our strategies and practices. The student-centred focus of our Graduate School has been widely acknowledged across the University and outside. I consider it a privilege to be working with such a diversity of doctoral students and I look forward to meeting many of you or hearing about your work

Associate Professor Vadim Grinevich, Faculty Director of the Graduate School

Welcome from Dr Ben Saunders

Whether you're new to Southampton or not, I'd like to welcome you all to PGR study. I hope that this latest chapter in your educational journey proves to be a rewarding one. I'm the Deputy Director of the Faculty Graduate School, which means that I oversee our training provision for postgraduate researchers, whether it concerns your immediate studies or later employment. Any training requests can be raised at our regular Graduate School Advisory Group meetings, via your PGR student representatives or Doctoral Programme Directors. I look forward to meeting you all in person, perhaps at our induction session in October.

Dr Ben Saunders, Deputy Director of the Faculty Graduate School
