Postgraduate research support

You will be part of a research community, with a high level of academic and pastoral support, irrespective of your discipline. 

This support comes both from your individual academic departments and from within the Graduate School.

The Graduate School provides research students with:

  • a study room exclusively for their use, equipped with full IT facilities and 24-hour secure access
  • an interdisciplinary Researcher Development Programme
  • information regarding external funding opportunities
  • membership to the Postgraduate Research Association.

We also organises a Supervisor Development Programme and an Annual Supervisor Conference.

Postgraduate Research Association (PGRA)

The Postgraduate Research Association (PGRA) is a society organised by research students.

The Association's represents the interests of research students by promoting social interaction and collective identity with university authorities and other relevant national and regional bodies. All research students are encouraged to participate.

Elected PGRA representatives sit on the Research and Knowledge Exchange Committee and are, as a result, able to promote research student issues directly to the Head of the Graduate School.
