Recap of August

In August, the Postgraduate Council went completely virtual in light of the NSW COVID-19 restrictions. We held several events for 500+ postgraduates including our PGC Podcast series, Arc PGC Ambassador and Course Coordinator Information Session, a special webinar with Australian-Afghan Diaspora Council: Helping Afghanistan during the current times, and the biggest, most epic social event with Apart but together: UNSW's ultimate social get-together!

Useful Resources


The Forced Migration Research Student Network are looking to hear from students from forced migration backgrounds in order to provide insights into what can be done to improve the overall student experience. No identifying information will be included, and your story will be put in a proposal to the incoming Vice Chancellor. 

If you are interested in sharing your story or views on this matter, please contact Zoe Bell at z.bell@unsw.edu.au. The Forced Migration Research Student Network is made up of multidisciplinary postgraduate students. If you are interested in joining the group, check us out here.
