PGR Student Engagement Project Workshop

Do you have something to say about research student representation at King’s? Do you feel PGR students have their voices heard?

We are delighted to announce that we have recently been successful with our application to be one of twelve participating institutions in The Student Engagement Partnership’s (TSEP) PGR Student Engagement Project. By participating in this project we have a fantastic opportunity to explore and develop the following areas:

  • To better understand the needs, interests and aspirations of PGR students here at King’s, through a greater understanding of the barriers they face and discovering where their identity lies.
  • To explore a bespoke approach to PGR representation; considering methods of student consultation and alternative feedback mechanisms.

On Tuesday 6th October we will be hosting a workshop to launch the project in conjunction with KCLSU and TSEP. We’re hoping to have as many PGR students present as possible.

During the workshop you’ll have an opportunity to share and discuss your PGR experience here at King’s, alongside the areas listed above.

This project will pave the way for a better PGR experience here at King’s and in order for us to get the most out of this fantastic opportunity we’ll need your help.

The workshop will take place from 11-3pm on Tuesday 6th October. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Beyond the workshop there will be plenty of other opportunities to engage with the project throughout the year ahead.

If you are interested in participating please email Chris Bull on chris.bull@kclsu.org to express your interest, and if you know of anyone else that would be interested, by all means bring them along!
