About Bristol SU Postgraduate Network



Welcome to Bristol SU Postgraduate Network - the hub for all postgraduate students at the University of Bristol. 


Get involved and keep up to date with the latest PG Network news and events by joining Bristol SU Postgraduate Network on Facebook or emailing




The PG Network is a student-led initiative for all postgraduate students that seeks to develop an active, strong and vibrant postgraduate community here at Bristol.


To meet fellow postgraduate students and find out more about the Network in an informal setting come along to our Postgraduate Meetups every Thursday night in the Balloon Bar.


The PG Network provides a real chance for students to 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.
