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.
