Throughout the year the Graduate School hosts free Postgraduate Lunches on a range of topics; from: Wellbeing to Submitting your Thesis to Increasing your Employability.
These lunches (topic dependant) are for PGT and/or PGR students; so you can get together over a free lunch and find out more about topics important to postgrad life, but also more importantly have the opportunity to meet other PG students and have a well-deserved break.
Let us know what topics you'd like to hear about by completing our feedback form.
