The Postgraduate Forum exists to provide additional training and networking opportunities for postgraduates across the UK and further afield. We put on a number of events every year, including our long-running Annual Conference Training Symposium (ACTS) before the RGS-IBG’s annual conference. Furthermore, we promote funding opportunities, advertise jobs and offer original blog posts to our community through our media channels (website, Twitter and Instagram). This is done through the hard work and dedication of a committee who work voluntarily to make all of this possible.
Below you can hear a previous Chair, Caitlin Hafferty (@CaitlinHafferty), talk about the work of the PGF.
The Forum is part of the family of RGS-IBG Research and Working Groups. More information on these, including a privacy notice for research group members in line with 2018’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is available here.
Postgraduate Insights Webinars
In conjunction with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), we are launching a series of webinars for postgraduate geographers. These events will run throughout the 2022 – 23 academic year and will provide postgraduate researchers with the skills to thrive during and after their doctorial programmes. Upcoming trainings will cover topics such as:
- Getting involved in a Research Group
- New to teaching
- Applying for grants to support your research
- Reviewing journal articles
A full list of the events and details of how to sign up can be found on the RGS-IBG website.
