Groups and Events
We run a variety of regular events and activities in an attempt to build community and reduce feelings of isolation among postgraduate students. Our Walk & Talk events highlight the importance of regular work breaks, providing students with an opportunity to stretch their legs and get away from their desks. PGRunners, our free weekly running group, accepts members of all abilities, from couch potato, to casual jogger, to competitive sprinter. For the outdoorsy we also have PhDiggers, a gardening group with projects in both on-campus allotments and a walled garden near Earlham Hall. We also have a monthly Bullet Journal Group, for either those who love planning their lives, or those who want to get more organised.
Outside of the Courage Project, postgraduate(su) also offers a variety of regular events and opportunities for PGR students, including the Scholars’ Bar weekly pub quiz, the Postgraduate Open Mic Nights, and 5-a-side Football. UEA postgraduates also have access to a variety of sporting activities at reduced costs, including yoga, badminton, and swimming pool access, all for just £1.
