University Graduate School Events

The University is committed to supporting and creating a vibrant postgraduate community where each postgraduate can access valuable opportunities to meet with fellow postgraduates, develop transferable skills and gain careers support. As part of this commitment, we offer a variety of academic, social and wellbeing activities throughout the year.
