The UNSW Postgraduate Council (PGC) represents postgraduate students to the University administration, all levels of government, the local community, and peak national representative bodies. Postgraduate student representation is provided through the PGC, individual Office Bearers, Committee Liaisons, the head of the Project Management Office, the Chief Marketing Officer and Committee members. Specifically, the PGC deals with representation issues for postgraduate students whose needs and student experience differ from those of undergraduate students.

PGC's core mission is to facilitate a positive postgraduate experience across the student life cycle (starting the degree, throughout the course, and after they graduate) and is based on three main values: 


  1. To increase the voice of postgraduates at different levels of the university.

  2. To strengthen the student voice by connecting student bodies within UNSW, such as Student Representative Council, Academic Board, and Arc Board.


  1. To organise flagship university-wide events that foster community building, celebrate student achievements, and encourage a diverse social atmosphere.
  2. To organise professional development events that educate postgraduates on entering the job market and guide their transition from postgraduate student to employee.


  1. To offer a first point-of-contact for postgraduates with coursework and research inquiries.
  2. To promote the diversity and inclusion of all postgraduate students.
  3. To connect postgraduate students with UNSW well-being services.
