Here you will find resources to support you as a newly enrolled doctoral researcher. These have been provided by presenters who contributed to the GS Orientation Event in September 2020 and January 2021. Orientation occurs twice in each academic year so these resources may be updated or replaced after the January 2021 orientation.
