The UBU Postgrad Hub is a new project designed to provide postgraduate students with a community of advice, support, training, and other opportunities tailored to their needs and experience.
The hub is under development stage and is kicking off with the PG Diary Project, details of call for participants found in the below section. If you would like to get involved, or have any questions or suggestions, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Find information about our Postgraduate Research Initiative, an element of the Postgrad Hub that gives current students the opportunity to hone their research skills while finding out more about postgrads' experience and how they engage with the Students' Union.
Call for Diary Participants: FAO PG Taught students
Project: ‘Two Weeks in The Life of a University of Bristol Taught Postgraduate’
Do you want the university to hear about your Postgraduate Taught Experience?
The University of Bristol Students’ Union (UBU) is launching an exciting research project in which you can play an important role. We are asking interested postgrad taught students if they are willing to keep a diary for two weeks in term three: Project Title, ‘Two Weeks in The Life of a University of Bristol Taught Postgraduate’. The diary will inform us about how taught postgrads manage their studies around commitments in their everyday lives. We will have a Focus Group at the end of the project, which will give participants a chance to confirm their concerns and share their experiences with other participants. The research findings will help us develop our future postgraduate engagement, teaching and learning, and representation work with the university.
If you enjoy writing and reflecting on your postgrad experience here then this is a great opportunity for you to influence teaching and learning policies. We will select interested students who are representative of the broad range of the postgraduate taught community across all faculties.
In addition to home students and those progressing directly from undergraduate degrees, we encourage students in the following areas to volunteer: international, parents with dependent children, older students (those above the age of thirty) part-time students with other employment or domestic/caring responsibilities, and students who have declared a disability. We aim to adhere to the highest standards of research integrity and ethics – all participant identities will remain anonymous. You will be assured that all data will have limited access and encrypted protection.
If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering please respond to Dr. Jeanette Monaco at: email@example.com.
Please include in your email: your name, age, faculty, course/programme, and whether you are a full-time or part-time, international or home student. Please include additional information such as employment status (part-time or full-time), caring responsibilities and any declared disability.
