PGR Conversation Group starts on Thursday 27 February- book your space today!

The PGR Conversation Group runs from Thursday 27th February until Thursday 2nd April. We know that studying for a PhD can be tough and sometimes you might need to step away from it and reconnect with others. The conversation group is a small facilitated group that encourages doctoral researchers to make meaningful connections with each other in a safe environment.

The group is an opportunity to meet with other PhD students in a similar situation. You might not necessarily want to have these conversations with your supervisors or departmental colleagues; perhaps there are issues that are impacting on your studies; perhaps they are impacting on your wellbeing. Whatever it is, come and join the group. Often peers can offer each other practical solutions and support which can make a big difference.

This conversational group will take place on Thursday mornings (10:30 - 12:00) at Highfield Campus.  It will commence on 27th February and will run until 2nd April (inclusive).

You will be required to attend the group for 1.5 hours each week for the full six sessions where possible. 

For more information or to register for this conversational group, please email Enabling Services at or call Enabling Services on 023 8059 7726.
