Postgraduate Research Reps

The Role of a Postgraduate Research (PGR) Rep


PGR Reps focus on finding ways to develop and improve the academic experience of students in their faculties. PGR Reps represent students in their faculty and attend their Faculty Research and Innovation Committee. This committee works on promotion and development of a research culture and supports the faculty research strategy.

There 2 roles available in each faculty; some for all PGRs and some for those studying for Professional Doctorates.
