University Graduate School

The University Graduate School supports Birmingham’s postgraduate researcher (PGR) and postgraduate taught (PGT) community. We foster an interdisciplinary community and act as a gateway to support and advice. We work closely with the other University support services to ensure our postgraduates have access to a high quality postgraduate experience.

As well as the dedicated support provided to postgraduates through the University Graduate School and University support services, the Guild also supports our postgraduates through the dedicated Postgraduate Officer and Postgraduate and Mature Student Association.
