The PG Network is a student-led initiative for all postgraduate students (both research and taught) that seeks to develop an active, strong and vibrant postgraduate community here at Bristol.
The PG Network provides a real chance for students to together shape and develop Bristol postgraduate community life. Its cohesive and supportive nature inspires postgraduate students to get involved in organising and attending social events, and provides a platform through which students can effectively feed into and influence the decision-making and priority-setting of Bristol SU and the University of Bristol.
