PGT News

Summer at the PG Hub - events and temporary relocation

A reminder that the PG Hub has been relocated to the Library Building until 24 August as we host events and an Athletes Village for the Commonwealth Games! The Library’s Community Engagement Team is running PG Tips through the summer in the main library – this is a chance for you to take-a-break and meet our PG Mentors and other PGs, ask questions and discuss anything about life at Warwick - with drinks and snacks! You can also check the live availability of key study spaces over the summer. 

Careers support and Graduate Outcomes survey

If you're finishing your studies soon, you'll be invited to respond to the Graduate Outcomes survey 15 months after your course. This national survey collects information on the activities and perspectives of graduates and the anonymous results can be invaluable in helping future students consider potential career options. To make sure we can get in touch to invite you to complete the survey, please keep your contact details up-to-date by visiting the University’s Student Records Online.

And if you don’t have any plans yet for after your course, visit the Careers website for resources and to talk to an adviser. You can access free careers support after you leave Warwick!

Wellbeing for postgrads

Our Postgraduate Taught Masterclass provides you with a snapshot of strategies and tips that you can use to look after your wellbeing. The aim is to give you the tools you can use to reflect on your own experiences during, and after you have taken part. Our Steps to Wellbeing sessions are also running during July and August - register for Managing Stress and Anxiety and Productivity and Work Life Balance sessions. Read more wellbeing tips and support for postgrads.

Remember that Wellbeing and Student Support remain open as usual throughout summer. Brief consultations are available every Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm and can be accessed via the Wellbeing Portal or by dropping into us during these hours on the ground floor of Senate House. Online support and advice are available to all Warwick students 24/7 from Togetherall
