NUS Postgraduate Forum

The National Union of Students (NUS) is holding its 2010 Postgraduate Forum at the University tomorrow, Saturday 13 February.

Postgraduate Forums provide the opportunity for officers and staff in both the Students' Union and University who are responsible for representing or supporting postgraduate students to come together to share practice, and discuss all matters postgraduate.

The February Forum will be on the theme 'National Issues for Postgraduates', in anticipation of National and Postgraduate Conferences in April. Issues to discuss include: funding for postgraduate taught students, international postgraduates, postgraduates that teach and the concentration of research funding in research-intensive institutions.

Professor Jane Millar, Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research) is opening the event with a plenary talk entitled 'The postgraduate experience in a harsh funding climate'.

The event costs only £10 per delegate (payable on arrival) and lunch is provided. The event will begin at 11am and end no later than 4.30pm.

To register, email NUS Postgraduate Policy Officer debbie.mcvitty@nus.org.uk with name(s), role, institution, and any dietary or access requirements.
