Postgraduate researcher (PGR) reps

Each faculty runs a Postgraduate Researcher Engagement Forum (PEF) in which PGR academic representatives, Students’ Union staff, and staff from the University meet to discuss the experiences of colleagues in each department.

How it works

Each Faculty runs a Postgraduate Researcher Engagement Forum (PEF) around 3-4 times a year in which PGR academic representatives, Students’ Union staff, and staff from the University meet to discuss the experiences of colleagues in each Department. The student chair reports on each PEF to the respective Faculty Research Degrees Committee, which is attended by PGR Directors and the Associate Dean (Doctoral College). Your representatives are available to raise important issues from the PGR community and disemminate central information.

If you are interested in becoming a rep please get in contact with your department's current PGR rep or
