Students agree their research topic with a main supervisor before they start; they attend all departmental research seminars and special lectures and deliver at least 1 paper of their own each year, usually at the annual Postgraduate Forum; if there are areas of research methodology which need to be addressed, they are invited to attend relevant courses offered by the Graduate School, or their supervisor advises them.
