At Flinders University induction sessions for new Research Higher Degree (RHD) students are held each semester in March and August. These are facilitated by the Office of Graduate Research. This seminar will provide a general introduction to all essential information about candidature. Additionally, induction aims to provide guidance and advice on how to adjust University life at this level. At induction, student entitlements and responsibilities are defined and clearly communicated, and information is given about the opportunties to meet other research students and staff. Students are given the opportunity to learn about the experience of undertaking a doctoral thesis from an experienced student, and also to hear from a highly successful past student about the career advantages of taking a higher degree from Flinders University.

New students will receive a formal letter of invitation to the induction session after enrolment from the Office of Graduate Research.
