What does the Postgraduate Forum Do?

During the year the convenors undertake the following tasks:

  • circulate information of interest to other postgraduates via the Postgraduate Forum email distribution list;
  • support and host PG Focus podcasts;
  • keep the Postgraduate Forum pages of the BSA website up to date;
  • make contributions to Network, the BSA members newsletter;
  • assist with the processing of BSA Support Fund applications by joining the panel of members who grant awards from the Fund;
  • help organise the Postgraduate Workshops/Events at the BSA Annual Conference; and
  • represent the interests of Postgraduate members at Council meetings.

In undertaking this role, the convenors are always keen to hear from Forum members, whether they have an issue concerning the BSA they would like to raise, have an idea for an article in Network or are involved in organising an event that would be of interest to other members.  The Postgraduate Forum convenors can be contacted via email, facebook and also administer their own external Postgraduate Forum website.
