PGR-led activities fund

The University Graduate School is keen to encourage PGR-led peer development and engagement, and all postgraduate researchers can use the Westmere PGR Hub to organise their own events. 

Postgraduate researchers can apply for the PGR-led engagement fund throughout the year. The main purpose of the fund is to enable PGRs to gain transferable skills and experience in planning, organising and implementing engagement activities. Proposed activities can include academic seminars as well as social events.
