News  

Hello everyone,

Welcome to all new postgraduates at Cardiff University! For those who are returning to Cardiff – welcome back. This is the postgraduate newsletter and over the year I will update it with news about the university and the union, information about the great number of postgraduate specific social events and further announcements from myself. If you have any suggestions for what should be in the newsletter, or if you have any questions generally, then please don’t hesitate to contact me at VPPostgraduate@Cardiff.ac.uk.

Postgrad Wine Tasting Championship

Building on the excitement of other postgraduate events, the next event that we are running at the Students’ Union is going to be the Postgraduate Wine Taster Evening on the 17th of November at 21:30. Teams will be blindfolded and have to guess the wines. Each member of the winning team will receive a free bottle of wine. Sadly, and because of high demand at previous events, the numbers will be capped to make sure that everyone who attends will be able to sample every wine on offer. The bar will also be open as well. Tickets are available online so make sure that you get yours before they all go!

Postgraduate Study Zones

Something else that is really exciting is the development of the new Postgraduate Study Zones. These spaces will have computer access, silent study space and group study lounges for postgraduates to work in. Located in the Students' Union building on Park Place, and at the Heath Park Campus, these spaces offer dedicated facilities for postgrad students. Find out more at cardiff.ac.uk

Postgraduate Executive

Really exciting news. The new Postgraduate Executives have been appointed and I am delighted to say that this year we have an incredible team. The team will focus on a number of issues throughout the year and we will work together to ensure that your needs are catered for. Thank you to everyone who applied. Competition was incredibly strong so don’t be upset if you were not successful. There are plenty of opportunities throughout the year to get involved with the Students’ Union.

Do you want my job?

As VP Postgraduate, you can make a real, lasting difference to Postgraduate students at Cardiff University. Find out more
