The RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum was founded in 1984 to represent postgraduates in geography within the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers).
The Postgraduate Forum:
- represents postgraduates and their interests in the Council and other relevant Committees of the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) and, to an extent, in the wider circles of academia;
- fosters communications, both formal and informal, among postgraduates;
- provides information about events, learned activities, grants/funding, vacancies and other information that may be relevant to postgraduates;
- offers support and opportunities for postgraduates to further develop their professional skills and credentials.
