Celebrating success

Celebrating success

Postgraduate success comes in many different forms. At Kent, reward and recognition is a fundamental part of your experience. The Graduate and Researcher College offers a number of initiatives that celebrate the hard work of our postgraduate students, researchers and academics.

The Graduate and Researcher College can help you to realise your potential on an intellectual, social and personal level. We offer a diverse range of activities and events that recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution our postgraduate community makes to the Kent experience.

Researcher's Showcase

The Kent Showcase is an annual event hosted by the Graduate and Researcher College. It brings together the postgraduate and postdoctoral community to recognise the excellence of research at Kent.

Postgraduate Community Experience Awards

Do you want to make art from DNA, or run yoga writing retreats? Maybe hold a public engagement competition or bring theory to life?

Apply for funding through the Postgraduate Community Experience Awards and your idea could become reality. Funding of up to £1,500 can be awarded for applications that run events or projects with an interdisciplinary and/or external focus and enhance the postgraduate community at Kent. 

Contact the Graduate and Researcher College at kentgrc@kent.ac.uk with any queries.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday 24 November 2021.
