As Postgraduate Researchers (PGRs), there are several ways that you can communicate with other researchers and staff in the Graduate School community.
Graduate School Community
The Graduate School would like to promote an interactive community for PG Researchers and supervisors by using a number of tools.
The Digital Doctorate Blog
This newspaper style blog is edited by the Researcher Development Manager and acts as a repository of reflections on the development of doctoral researchers and their supervisors by providing hints, tips, advice and other outputs from the skills development programme.
UWE GradSchool on Twitter
The Graduate School has a Twitter account for the purpose of sharing best practice, advice and suggestions from peers in the world of doctoral education. Events, studentships and news of relevance to UWE Bristol researchers are promoted through this medium.
PG Researcher representatives
The Faculty Research Degrees Committee (FRDC) and Graduate School Committee both have PGR representatives as members. If you have a PGR issue you would like to raise, please contact your representative.
Graduate School Committee
The Graduate School Committee meets at various locations around UWE Bristol each year, and aims to meet up with those involved in doctoral activity after every ‘official’ meeting to see if this will help everyone feel a bit more connected.
Between 11:30 and 12:00, some members of the GSC and of the Graduate School Office will be available – please feel free to pop along to ask questions about the Graduate School, how it works and what it is doing for staff and PG Researchers. Anything from just matching names to faces to challenging questions about doctorates would be welcome. Rooms and Campus location to be confirmed.
