Our Postgraduate Community

Welcome to the School of Life Sciences Postgraduate Research Community

Here in the School of Life Sciences we’re committed to supporting our students’ wellbeing to ensure that your experience studying with us is the best it can be. Whether you’re studying silk-weaving spiders or looking for new ways to fight infection, we want all of our students to feel part of our vibrant and diverse research community. There are loads of opportunities to meet your fellow researchers and get involved with student activities and projects during your time at the University of Nottingham.

Current students can find out more details, including how to contact student groups and register for events, on the School of Life Sciences PGR Moodle Information Page.

What are you waiting for? Get involved!

Events Programme

As a new initiative this year, the School of Life Sciences has organised an annual programme of monthly social outings and activities for current students. These events will be fully or partially subsidised and range from walks through campus and the nearby Attenborough Nature Reserve, to trips to the Motorpoint Ice Skating arena and Yoga retreats.

School Groups

Our postgraduate researchers aren’t just passionate about science! Alongside their studies, our students get together to share their interest in sport and other hobbies, whether that’s working towards their black belt in taekwondo or playing a round of badminton.

Science Outreach & Public Engagement

Here at the School of Life Sciences, we’re proud to say that our students are involved in a range of science outreach and public engagement projects, including Pint of Science and University of the Third Age (U3A). Find out more about events and how to get involved using the links below:
