New resources for postgraduate research students from QAA Scotland

Date 16/11/2017

QAA Scotland has published a suite of resources to support the enhancement of the postgraduate research student (PGR) experience. During 2012-16, aspects of the PGR experience arose as areas for development in 13 out of 18 Enhancement-led Institutional Reviews. As a result, the PGR experience was selected as a topic for a Focus On project, exploring:

  • training and support for postgraduate students who teach
  • support for staff who supervise research students
  • building a research community for PGRs
  • representation for PGRs.

The full suite of resources, which includes an overview of current policy and practice, a summary of key issues, short films and event materials, is available on the QAA Scotland website.

For more information about the PGR experience and our other Focus On projects, please contact Debra Macfarlane, project lead, at d.macfarlane@qaa.ac.uk.
