The Postgraduate Students' Association is the only UCSA affiliated club run by Postgrads for Postgrads to assist and improve the postgraduate experience at UC. UC PGSA provides a voice and social support for all UC students 400 level and above.
UC PGSA organises social events to encourage professional and social interaction with a wide variety of interdisciplinary postgraduate members, supervisors, faculty and future employers. It also provides opportunities for peer guidance, support, advocacy, communication and networking.
UC PGSA supports the Postgraduate Office's academic and professional development seminars and lectures. Social events run by UC PGSA include meet ups, quiz nights, trips away and an annual postgraduate ball.
Our executive committee comprises a range of domestic and international postgraduates and we have liaisons and advocates for postgraduates across the University, all of whom work hard to raise and maintain the unique status of postgraduates at UC.
We are all about improving postgrad networking & community, postgrad skills and postgrad good times!
