Hope your work is going well. I am working hard to finish my thesis.
I am taking a break to let you know about events that are coming up that you could get
involved in. Next week is the AGM, whilst on the 1st of April we are having Pizza with the
Pro Vice Chancellor of Research Professor Kay Weaver.
2014 PGSA AGM

We are looking for more people to be involved on our executive for 2013/2014, and help us

If you are at all interested please come along to the meeting or contact Carrie Swanson on
cjs123 for more information.
Postgraduate Pizza Social Event
All postgraduate students are invited to a pizza social networking event organised by the
PGSA. Professor Kay Weaver will be attending. This is a opportunity to talk to other
research students, build networks and share the journey.
Location: Level Zero, M.0.02

Please RVSP to Carrie on cjs123 by March 31st so we can ensure we have sufficient pizza.

Postgraduate Presentation Series
We offer students who are approaching confirmation or a conference an opportunity to
present their work to an audience of their peers. This generally occurs once a month. We
are planning to have it at Level Zero once a month, followed by coffee. If you want to
present can you please email Carrie on cjs123.
Peer Publications Group
We are planning to start a publications group where research students support each other
to prepare articles for publication. This will involve some writing, peer feedback, and
accountability. We also envisage that we will invite speakers and get mentoring as
appropriate. If you are interested please email me on cjs123. This group will start in
April. More details to follow.
Postgraduate Research and Student Experience Committees
I will be attending these committees in early April. If you have any issues or anything
you wish me to raise, can you please contact me on cjs123
