External Events

This page lists events, seminars, workshops etc that may be of interest to colleagues supporting postgraduate education.  It is updated on an ongoing basis with events relevant mainly for staff supporting PGRs.  The links section includes a range of links to broader events and organisations. 

If there is something missing that you think would be useful here, if you would like information about organisations that the University belongs to or information about whether someone will or did attend a specific event, please contact the PGR Service.  We don't have oversight of all event attendance but we attend many ourselves and work closely with Deans of Graduate Studies and Graduate School colleagues.  We are happy to disseminate information where we have attended an event on behalf of the University and routinely do this via the Deans of Graduate Studies Committee.
