Student Safety Advice Drop-in Sessions

These monthly drop-in sessions give you the opportunity to talk to the police in an informal setting, whether you'd like to chat about reporting avenues, any concerns you may have, or just need some advice in a friendly, relaxed setting.

The sessions take place monthly during term time in the Library (first floor, by the lifts). The two next dates are:
Mon 20 Nov 11.30 - 14.30

Cultural Celebrations in the PG Hub

Last week we celebrated the Mexican Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration in the PG Hub, for the first time ever! It was an opportunity for some of our Postgraduate students from Mexico to share their culture and customs with the rest of the PG Community. We even set up our own Ofrenda (Offer) in the communal area and did some traditional face-painting.

Do you have a cultural event you want to share with your fellow postgraduates? Why not email us at to see how we can support you. Don’t forget to check out the pictures below and check our website regularly for other postgrad events!

Networking, The Correct Way - for postgrads

Do you want to improve your networking skills? Attend our 2 hour highly interactive workshop, designed to demonstrate the correct way to network with others. Using elements from non-verbal communication (NVC), neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), behavioural psychology and ‘tricks of the trade’, attendees will be shown by an experienced networker how to best represent themselves and get the most of out of their networking experience, in the correct way!

Starting with the basics but progressing up to more complicated networking techniques, this workshop should give attendees the basic tools needed to excel in the networking arena.

Our next full workshop is on Wednesday 25 October, 5-7pm in the Wolfson Research Exchange, on the 3rd Floor of the Library. No need to book. This workshop is only open to postgraduate students.

Are you on the hunt for housing?

If you're still looking for private rented housing this year, it's really important that you are careful before signing your contract. Be particularly cautious if a landlord appears to be asking for the full rent upfront - this is not a normal way of operating. Always seek help from the SU Advice Centre if you are unsure.
