PGA Campaigns

Through UCLU and the Postgraduate Association, postgrad students at UCL campaign in defence of our rights, needs and interests as a community. Our policies and actions are collective and democratic - determined by meetings open to all postgrads and through the work of our elected PGA Committee.

A wide range of different events and activities are organised by postgrads, for postgrads, through the PGA. Below are our upcoming dates. Check back regularly as we add more! Our events are also open to mature undergraduates (those who began their studies aged at least 21).​

Why should you run to be the next PG officer?

Now that we have finally decided on our new (interim) sabbatical structure, nominations are open and elections are approaching fast!

My first month as Welfare & International Officer

Settling into my role as Welfare and International Officer has been hectic but fun!

Campaigning for part-time postgraduate rights

28% of UCL’s Masters and PhD students are part-time, citing reasons from funding availability to fitting study around work or family commitments. It’s a distinct way to be a student with its own benefits and difficulties. Unfortunately some of the latter have been overlooked, but through the Postgraduate Association part-time postgrads are organising for action. In Spring 2012, we used a survey to find out more about the challenges facing the community, and produced a report detailing the results and a number of recommendations. Since then, we have been campaigning for change and are beginning to achieve improvements.

Welcome Postgraduates!

Hello Postgrads!

Events & Activities for Postgrads

Your time at UCL isn’t just about your academic work! Through Students’ Union UCL and the PGA, the UCL student community has created a huge array of opportunities to take time out and get to know other students. Whether you want to relax or get active, and however much time you want to give, there’s something for everyone. And if (unusually!) what you’re looking for doesn’t exist, perhaps you’ll be the one to create it!
