Postgraduate Student's Network

PGR network

We know that being a postgraduate student can be vastly different to our experience at undergraduate level, with many students experiencing social isolation and gaps in experience. Our Postgraduate Network seeks to improve this with the postgraduate students at the heart.

Open to postgraduate students from across all faculties, the Postgraduate Network exists to campaign on the issues important to you, offer opportunities for you to socialise with postgraduate students and create a campus wide network.
