Postgraduate Orientation Week is an opportunity for our local and distance students to receive a basic orientation to postgraduate research in the department.  It includes topics such as:

  • Orientation to research and postgraduate study
  • Critical reading and managing sources
  • Descriptions of postgraduate modules and research groups
  • How to use the Library
  • Mentorship by fellow students 
  • How to write helpful research questions
  • The process of approval: Humanities Higher Degrees Committee and ethical clearance

The week also includes social activities designed to expose postgraduates to the department as a collegial academic community.
