PGR Drop In

Happy new year my PGR family! On 16 & 23 of this month (from 09 till 10 am), I am organising PGR drop in. This is a safe space to speak about anything PGR-related and I will help signposting you to the right person to deal with any issue you may be facing.

Location: meeting room 12, DH1 space, Students' Guild

Library Funding Support for PGRs?

* In SSIS, there is a Library Liaison Officer for each Department (this person is the same for staff and PGR students); here is the list: 
  * Students in SSIS do have access to inter library loans (ILLs) (through the PGR Office team) - everyone has access to 5 tokens of ILLs (free of charge), after which everyone can request additional vouchers of 5 tokens (one voucher at a time, free of charge).

Funding Available for SSIS PGR Students?

All students have a 1000GBP initial allowance (over the course of their study) and there is a potential of up to a further 1000GBP once that allowance has been used for presenting at conferences or impact related requests.

Research Week

Supported by the Doctoral College, I am organising a research week on 21-25 May 2018. The plan is to have a diverse line of events on postgraduate matters. If you want to be part of the organising committee, please email me at vppgresearch@exeterguild.com.

Updates on eClaims

Hannah Crowe, Head of Talent Management, has spent the last few months investigating the process by which PTAs are engaged, contracted and then paid. This has meant detailed discussions with PTAs themselves, PGR Support Officers (and similar roles in colleges), HR Business Partners and a Director of Education.

Welcome to the PGR Hub

This is a virtual space to discuss all things PGR-related. It is a safe place to share ideas, ask questions, find relevant details, and hold me to account. A monthly blog update will be posted to tell you what I have been up to in a post that allows you to comment and share your thoughts on any of my progress or setback. Looking forward to having some interactive discussion with you all.
