Postgrad Welcome Events

Friday 18 September - Saturday 3 October 2015

The Postgraduate Students’ Association, the Graduate Centre and the Students’ Union have organised two weeks of events running alongside ‘Freshers’ so that postgraduates (masters and doctoral students) can get to know each other.   

Events are free to attend unless stated, however advance tickets are required for all events excluding the Fayres, as spaces are limited. Event details and tickets will be available online in September.

During the Welcome fortnight, the Graduate Centre Bar is open Monday to Saturday 17:00 – 23:00. It’s a great place to meet new friends and socialise.
