News & Events

Our aim is to organise events throughout the academic year to enhance the learning and experiences of Postgraduate students in the College. We hope to promote the development of a Postgraduate community in the College of Medicine & Health.

Our events are hugely popular. The workshops that have been organised cover such topics as improving presentation skills, research ethics, statistics lectures and qualitative research methods. We are continuously expanding our range of workshops in order to support the needs of the Postgraduate students.

The annual Winter Gathering and Summer BBQ are two highlights of the Postgraduate social calendar and are a great way for students across the college to meet.
