Postgraduate Research Festival
Every year we host Swansea's own Postgraduate Research Festival to highlight the work of our PGR community.
The PGR Festival is an opportunity for the PGR community across the university to come together with events that showcase the fantastic work that PGRs are undertaking, bring researchers from different disciplines together, and create a space to recognise and celebrate the postgraduate research community.
There's always a packed programme with hundreds of students and staff across our campuses participating in activities and student led events, cumulating in the PGR Showcase which plays host to the annual 3MT final, poster competition and PGR awards.
PGR Festival 2023
This year's PGR Festival will be held across May and we want to give the PGR community even more opportunities to share your research, share best practice, and to showcase your work by delivering an event as part of the PGR festival.
Some of the most successful events last year were designed and run by PGR students for PGR students and we’re here to support PGR students to deliver even more events this year.
Whether you want to share how you’ve planned a seminar series, show the creative ways you engaged people with your research, talk about cross disciplinary collaborations, or tell new students what you wished you’d known when you started your doctorate there’s space for everything.
It’s a great opportunity to not only design activities and events that you want to see but to build your experience in planning and delivering events/projects all while enhancing the research culture and PGR community. You’ll have support from the PGR Office team throughout the process.
If you want to hep make this year’s PGR Festival bigger and better share your idea for an event or project with us, let us know what support you’ll need to deliver it, and we’ll be in touch.
