We’re excited to announce the opening of a new space this October that is dedicated solely to the postgraduate research community. This new physical space in the refurbished Senate House (as part of the Campus Heart project) will offer a programme of events and activities designed to support, develop and connect our 3,000-strong body of postgraduate researchers, regardless of your faculty, funding, part-time or distance learner status.
Acting as a hub for all research students, this new space will offer:
- Personal and professional development training
- Bookable spaces for small research groups and cross-disciplinary meet-ups
- Social activities
- A quiet space to escape from the hubbub of campus life
- Wellbeing support and resources
And more – we’d love to hear your suggestions about how we can make this valuable for you.
The new PGR hub is a space dedicated to you and informed by you. Have your say and tell us how we can #MakeThisYours.
We invite you to #MakeThisYours before the space even opens by submitting a possible name for our new hub. Are there any famous research alumni who have inspired your journey? Could Hub-McHubFace be a serious contender? Send us your suggestions on social media or via email, and you’ll be entered into a random prize draw for one of two £25 Amazon vouchers!
We’ll put our favourite submissions to the vote in our next BDC Bulletin, due to land in inboxes September 14th.
