ClubPostgrad provides you with an informal opportunity to find out about postgraduate study. For example, what exactly is it? How is it assessed? What's a PhD? What's involved in doing a viva? What is a Doctoral Training Centre? What funding is available?

ClubPostgrad will be offering a series of talks, events and workshops to enable you to find out more about staying on at Nottingham for postgraduate study, what's involved, and providing you with support to make that step. You can ask questions, talk to current students, alumni and academics.

Why postgraduate?


Postgraduate study can open doors to an exciting new future.

It will give you the skills and knowledge to pursue the role of your choice, and can even help you earn more or start one step higher on the career ladder.

Research could take you across the world, while a new subject could lead you on a completely different career path.

Why Nottingham?


You already love our campuses, know our lecturers and have a sense of pride in your university. But did you know we also offer:

  • postgraduate placements, links with industry and over 200 sponsors of research
  • business start-up support for students with bright ideas
  • a Careers and Employability Service open to you for life
  • opportunities on our China and Malaysia campuses

Is it right for me?


Postgraduate study is about seeing how far you can take your talent and ambition.

You'll focus on the things that inspired you most as an undergraduate, and specialise in the areas you want to pursue.

Staff and students will be at the event to give you their honest opinion on whether further study should be your next step.

It’s not for everyone, but it could be for you. Come along and find out. 


Taught courses


Taught courses are divided into modules and usually taught in lectures and seminars.

If you enjoyed undergraduate, but want to specialise or gain further qualifications for your career, a taught course could be your next step.



Research courses

"[I was] encouraged by my lecturers to stay on for a PhD. They explained that you have to make ‘an original contribution to knowledge’."
