what is postgraduate(su)?

postgraduate(su) is an arm of the Union of UEA Students that is dedicated to representing and advocating for postgraduate students. 

postgraduate(su) is made up of the full-time Postgraduate Education Officer, a full-time Union staff member (Postgraduate Engagement Coordinator), the Postgraduate Committee, the Postgraduate Assembly, and the Graduate Centre Management Group. You can always stop by the Education & Engagement department in the Union Office to chat about any issues you may have. 

postgraduate(su) represents the postgraduate voice in many forums across the University. We support the Officer on the PGR Executive, all Graduate Students School Forums, Graduate School Executives, Student Staff Liason Committees, and in space management meetings where postgraduate students are affected. 

postgraduate(su) is mandated by the Postgraduate Committee to create calendars of events over periods of the year identified to be quiet periods on campus, in order for postgraduates to engage with one another outside of their busy study schedules. These periods are: Winter (December to Feburary), Easter, and Summer (July to September).

We help to administrate both the PG Assembly and PG Committee. Both democratic bodies meet several times a year with the first meeting early in Semester 1. At the first assembly of the year Assembly elect a Chair, and 5 ordinary members to sit on Committee. The Postgraduate Edcucation Officer is directly accountable to both Assembly and Committee, so if you want to affect change and have your voice heard, these forums are perfect!
