Postgrad Research Society

A social society. We provide a space for postgrads to hang out outside of academia. Think coffee mornings, board games, theatre trips, quiz nights....

Postgraduate study can be really fulfilling, but it can also be isolating. It's important to get away from the desk and find like-minded people. This society runs regular events which bring together postgraduate students from all the colleges in the university. We promote a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Our events are non-academic, and you DON'T have to talk about your research (unless you want to!). 

We've held board games nights, dinner events, coffee mornings and lunchbreaks. For the academic year 2020-21, however, we are going to have to do things a little differently due to COVID-19 restrictions. We'll be having online and outside socially distant events -- things like virtual coffee mornings and quiz nights, pomodoro study sessions on Microsoft teams, and outdoor picnics and swims.

We try to hold a few events a month, and we announce these via our mailing list and on our social media pages. We always welcome ideas for events, so do get in touch if you have any.

We also communicate news about events and services on campus relevant to postgrad students. If you know of any such events, give us a shout.

All disciplines and schools welcome.
