PGR Community Networks
There are a wide range of networks open to PGRs- browse the links below for more information.
The PhD Society was founded as a means to support all PGRs as they tackle the challenges of being a research student. The group provides a platform to socialise, provide development opportunities, improve overall wellbeing and to give research students a voice.
PGR Lunchtime Walks
Join fellow PGRs on Wednesdays at 1pm outside the Gilchrist for a sociable meander through the local landscapes. More information is shared on the @UofGPGRs Twitter, @UofG_PGRs Instagram and via email - so keep an eye on your inbox.
Indulge your green thumb by joining our PGR gardening sessions taking place every Wednesday at 5pm. There's something for everyone, and no experience is necessary to get started! For more information join the Viewfield Lane Gardens MS Teams group using your UofG login.
Run Talk Run
Run talk run is a weekly running group for all abilities with a safe space to talk about your mental health. Visit the Run Talk Run website or contact Kay Guccione to find out more.

Distance PGR Community
If you spend a lot of time away from campus, please join the distance PGR Yammer community. This is a news and discussion group specifically for those who work or live at a distance. PGRs can find the group on Yammer, using their UofG login.
LGBTQ+ Staff Network
This group is for all University of Glasgow staff and PhD researchers who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, queer or questioning.
The "Late-Career Early Career Reseacher" (LC-ECR) group is a support and knowledge exchange for researchers who identify as older than traditional early career researchers. There is no lower age limit for the group.
This collaborative network brings together early career researchers within MVLS (College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences) and supports their development.
