EASTBIO training calendar 2018-19 (please note that some of our training events are currently updated).

First-year students should fill in the EASTBIO Training Plan and Record form with their choice of Masterclasses and other core training by Monday the 19 October 2018 via an online link we will provide here shortly. You should update the form frequently throughout the first year, with EASTBIO or optional non-EASTBIO training. EASTBIO issues relevant training notifications and reminders and monitors the information on your Plan against training attendance records. At the end of the first year, each student receives a notification from EASTBIO regarding their fulfilment of the EASTBIO Training Requirement (please consult the Student Handbook 2018-19).

Second- and third-year students are sent yearly information and regular reminders about their Training Plan & Record requirements by the EASTBIO Administrator.

A copy of the updated Handbook is handed out to all new students and supervisors at Induction Day. For past handbooks you can check here.
