Our weekly update highlighting news and upcoming events for the PGR community for the week ending Friday 10 December 2021 should have arrived in your mailbox.  If you don’t currently receive the email, please contact the Doctoral School (doctoralschool@shu.ac.uk) and we will attach you the Research Degrees Blackboard site which will add you to the mailing list.

This will be the last update for this year, so may we take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  Whether or not you celebrate Christmas, we hope you have a chance to rest and relax.

The University will close on Friday 24 December and re-open on Tuesday 4 January 2022.  Although most University buildings will be closed during this time, there will be access to the library.
