National Postgraduate Conference
Postgraduate students make up almost a quarter of all students in the UK. Despite this, Universities often overlook their postgraduates. This can mean there’s not enough recognition of their experiences in Higher Education.
The National Postgraduate Conference 2019 is a day of information sharing focused on the postgraduate experience in Higher Education. Hear from experts in the PG experience, on topics from postgraduate mental health to the current funding landscape, and network with Sabbatical Officers and Students’ Union staff from across the country.
This conference is aimed at PG Officers, Education Officers and Union Staff in organisations across the UK.
Each organisation may have up to 3 delegates, if you would like to enquire about inviting more delegates please email firstname.lastname@example.org
