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 has kicked off with the PGT Diary Project. As part of it we asked interested postgrad taught students if they were 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 diaries of the 12 participants informed us about how taught postgrads manage their studies around commitments in their everyday lives. We had a Focus Group at the end of the project, which gave the participants a chance to confirm their concerns and share their experiences with other participants. We are currently in the process of writing up the findings and project report. The research findings will help us develop our future postgraduate engagement, teaching and learning, and representation work with the university. If you have any questions please email the principal investigator, Dr. Jeanette Monaco at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Furthermore, you can 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.
If you would like to get involved, or have any questions or suggestions, please get in touch at email@example.com.
