Postgraduate Experience Awards

Turning great ideas into reality!






Do you have a great idea for a postgraduate event? Apply for funding through the Postgraduate Experience Awards and it could turn into reality!

(Please note that the Postgraduate Experience Award is not able to support applications for catering unless as an integral part of a wider PG project)
