We would like to welcome all new postgraduates to Newcastle and of course welcome back everyone else!

We are really excited to meet you all!


The committee has changed quite a bit this year and we have some great ideas for the coming months so watch this space!

So what do we do? In a nutshell:

  • Seminar series
  • Socials
  • Christmas and end of year parties
  • Journal
  • Blogging and other social media
  • Conference

As we all know, doing your PhD or MA is hardly a walk in the park; everyone is isolated by the uniqueness of their research, which can make it seem like no one really understands what you are going through. We also know that it can be difficult for people to get involved if they don’t live locally, if they work, or are doing their Postgraduate degree part time. That is why, this year, we are making a concerted effort to match our lively presence within the School as well as online – find us also on twitter  and facebook!



We aim to get to know each other better and share our research interests.  We will use this space to advertise our events and update you through our monthly newsletters.  In the next few days we will collecting information for our postgraduate profiles, which we would like to post up on this site for you all to know who we are and what we do.

There is lots going on, so we hope to see you all at our events and perhaps even blogging for us!

The PGF committee.
