Update from Professor Dame Jessica Corner: periods of study for PGR students

July 9th, 2020

In response to the severe impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the studies and wellbeing of postgraduate research (PGR) students, the University has announced a change to PGR extensions.

As of today (Thursday 9 July) a total of six months extension of registration, with no additional fees payable by the student, will be offered for all PGRs whose registered period of study would have originally concluded between Sunday 1 March 2020 and Friday 1 October 2021.

Professor Dame Jessica Corner, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, said: “I hope that the certainty provided by the extensions will help alleviate the considerable anxiety experienced by a valued part of our University research community.”

Dame Jessica’s update also includes the latest on the return of research to our UK campuses, reaction to the government’s support for research, and celebrates more outstanding successes from colleagues in our research community.
