Post-Graduate Research (PGR) Roles

All of these roles are for memberships of different boards and committees that influence the PGR experience at UWS. This is a great opportunity to see the inner workings of the university, get even more experience in an academic setting, and really make a difference for yourself and other PGR students.


Doctoral College Board Members

  • They also review and monitor the conditions of doctoral candidates.


PGR Senate Rep

  • The PGR Senate Representative will be the PGR voice on the Senate.
  • The Senate is responsible for overall planning, co-ordination, development and supervision of the academic work of the University and the elected student officers sit on Sentate too.

Research and Enterprise Advisory Committee Members
