This community provides an online space for all PGR students to come together to build a network, and provide support and feedback on their student experience at Leeds Beckett.

This community is automatically populated. If you are a PGR student, you are already a member of this community.

Led by the Postgraduate Research (PGR) Students' Community Convenor, and supported by 10 elected PGR Students' Representatives, the Postgraduate Research Students' Community provides an online space for all PGR students to come together to build a network, and provide support and feedback on their student experience at Leeds Beckett.

Postgraduate research student representation, including both doctoral and master's level PGR students, provides a means by which the PGR community is represented in formal University and Students' Union structures and through which PGR students can raise any issues and concerns, communicating their opinions and thoughts on their student experience to the appropriate colleagues. It also provides an opportunity for PGR students to influence and be co-creators in the formulation and development of future University policy affecting research degree programmes, ensuring that the PGR student perspective is considered.

Each year, PGR students across the University elect a Postgraduate Research Representative in their School. From amongst their number, the PGR Representatives will elect one to act up as the PGR Students Community Convenor.

Leadership Elections

Students who put themselves forward to be an elected student leader run an election campaign to encourage their fellow students to vote for them. The candidates with the most votes are elected to represent their peers, whether that be leading the Students’ Union as a full-time Officer, leading their respective Student Communities or attending the NUS National Conference to represent Leeds Beckett students at a national level.
