PGR Forum: your voice
Through various committees, members of staff and peers, you have a voice within the Faculty and University. Below is an overview of the route you should follow if you have questions or concerns you would like to voice:
Supervisors and Personal Tutors
Support from your Supervisor and/or Personal Tutor is available and these staff will raise issues with Departments and the Faculty where needed.
Departmental PGR Forums
Departmental forums give students the opportunity to meet and discuss issues within their department. Any outstanding issues that are relevant at a Faculty level are carried forward to the Faculty PGR Forum by the department’s PGR representatives.

Our Faculty PGR Forum provides an opportunity for student representatives from each of the departments within the Faculty to meet each other and the Faculty PGR Lead (currently Martina Daly). This group gives PGR students a voice and helps ensure that student interests are represented in areas of course development, feedback, and general PGR provision. The Forum harnesses the creative power of students to develop ideas to help improve the PGR experience for students across the Faculty. We bring forward important issues to Faculty Graduate Research Committee, which is our direct audience with the staff.

Faculty Graduate School Committee
The Faculty Graduate Research Committee deals with issues regarding development, monitoring and assessment of postgraduate research students at a Faculty level. If issues can't be solved at Faculty level, they will then be taken up to the University Postgraduate Research Committee which looks after University-wide PGR matters.
