PGR reps create the link between students across the University and our Student Officers, working with staff, colleagues and fellow students to improve the student research experience – identifying and discussing issues that may arise. We know that PGR students have a unique experience whilst studying at University. PGR reps are the best placed people to help shape this experience.
Traditionally, recruitment will take place at the start of the academic year. Depending on the start of your studies, this may be different for PGR Reps but your school will be in touch to let you know. Students are asked if they would like to volunteer as a PGR Rep and there should be a selection process or an election, where the PGR Reps for the year are confirmed. To become a PGR Rep, contact your Programme Lead, Head of Department or Student Experience Team to put your name forward. If you have any questions or would like more support, please contact the Student Voice Team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
