If you are only able to visit campus a few times a year and wish to attend an on-site training course that is taking place while you are here, we will make every effort to accommodate you.

Please get in touch with us to arrange this, so as to avoid disappointment.

Contact Claire Copping for information and registration.

Yammer Group

Yammer Group

The University of Glasgow maintains a Yammer group for any and all Distance PGRs to raise questions, share their experiences, look for tips, and arrange events, both social and academic.

Yammer can be accessed via Office 365 or by clicking here (may require you to log in using your University email and password).

Once you are logged in, search "Distance PGRs" in the top right, and the group will appear under the "Groups" tab of the search results.
