Postgraduate life can be more demanding than life as an undergrad. The many hours required for studying may leave you feeling as though you have less time on your hands for other areas of university life. Your Students' Union is here to help you make your time at Royal Holloway as enjoyable as possible.
The Students' Union offers a whole range of services, support and advice for Postgraduates, as well as a wide range of social events. Pop into your Students' Union today and see what it can offer you or e-mail David Pavitt, Postgraduate Student Officer at email@example.com.
The RHUL website has a wealth of information for PG students. Please visit
The National Postgraduate Committee (NPC) is the representative body established to support postgraduate students. Working closely with the NUS, NPC supports postgraduate students, student officers, and institutions in recognising the postgraduate viewpoint and seeking to enhance the postgraduate experience. NPC activities include supporting individual students in complaints and appeals, representing postgraduate students nationally and regionally, promoting postgraduate viewpoints to and ensuring they are discussed by policy makers, and supporting campaigns such as those opposing visa fee extensions and PGCE fees. The relevant forms and affiliation information, as well as other details about the work of the NPC can be found online at www.npc.org.uk
Many mature students have met others and found out about events being organised for Mature students via Facebook.
Postgraduate & Mature Students Social :
The first postgraduate social will be running on Tuesday the 30th November 7.30pm in the Stumble Inn. All postgraduate and mature students are welcome to attend. The event should be a great opportunity to have some fun and meet like minded students. It will also be a chance to raise any issues with the Students Union’s Postgraduate and Mature student’s representatives.
David is currently in the process of organising a postgraduate lunch and a weekly evening event where PG students can mingle and he would love to hear from PG students about what they would like and when. Please send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
