Our Vice-Chancellor Professor Nic Beech would like to warmly welcome our new research students to Middlesex, to our MDX family and to our Research Community.
We have two induction sessions during the academic year depending when you start your course; September or January.
We highly recommend you take advantage of your induction as you'll have the opportunity to meet our support services, speak to our library team and be introduced to key faculty staff members.
Starting a research degree is an exciting yet daunting task. We want to ensure your journey with us is a positive experience right from the start.
By completing our pre-arrival survey, you'll have the opportunity to let us know more about yourself and your expectations, and we can use this information to assist you further in your studies.
The induction day for January starters was held on Thursday 14 January 2021. and was delivered virtually.
It had been designed for students studying one of the following disciplines:

Research Library Induction
In this workshop, Dr Adam Edwards, Jamie Halstead and Susannah Parry, Subject Liaison Librarians, will take you through the resources necessary for your studies.
Find the essential instructions and checklist for this session. If you can download these two items before the meeting this will save time on the day.
During the session you will work through the instructions sheets at your own speed with Librarians available to help you 1-2-1 if required. As soon as you complete the work you are free to go, so unless we have technical issues on the day, the session will be shorter than the two hours advertised.
If you have any questions about this session please email Dr Adam Edwards.
