PGR Awards: Celebrating our PGR Community

The PGR Awards are an opportunity to recognise the hard work and accomplishments of people across our PGR community. From academic excellence, to public engagement superstars, from staff who go the extra mile, to PGRs who focus on building their community and bringing people together.

Some of our awards are decided by judging panels as part of university-wide competitions such as 3MT, while those below are based on nominations from our PGR and staff community. 

The deadline for this year's nominations is 26 April 2024, with winners and prizes to be given at the PGR awards on 22nd May.
