Regional Postgraduate Day Events

The BSA is committed to providing a range of services for its membership including the really important constituency of postgraduate students.  

2016 Call for Expressions of Interest

The British Sociological Association is requesting expressions of interest from postgraduate students interested in organising a regional postgraduate day event in 2016. In 2015, eight successful events were held throughout the UK. These one-day events express the diversity and dynamism of the postgraduate experience. It is hoped that Regional Postgraduate Day Events will provide a variety of events throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and that they will become an annual series in the BSA calendar.


We are looking for postgraduate organisers willing to co-ordinate with speakers and the BSA to organise a day event at the student's institution. The BSA will provide upto £1,000 support for the event, which should be £10 for BSA members to attend and £25 for non-members. The grant can be used to pay for room hire, speakers, lunch and refreshments. Organisers are encouraged to seek a contribution from the host institution, such as free accommodation or a financial contribution to refreshments. The BSA Office will also promote and publicise the Postgraduate day schools through a number of outlets including flyers in membership packs, the BSA website and member e-newsletters. 


Please complete an expression of interest and email to the BSA Events Team and address all correspondence:  BSA Regional Postgraduate Events.


The submission deadline for proposals is: 5pm on Friday, 9 October 2015.  Late applications will not be considered.
