PGRs: help us improve the postgraduate research recruitment journey

March 21st, 2024

Postgraduate research students (PGRs) are a core part of our community of people who are working together to change the world.  

We know that securing a postgraduate research position is challenging, from navigating the application process to finding a research supervisor in a highly competitive environment.  

So, it’s important to make the experience of applying to become a PGR the best it can be. 

We want to ensure that we are doing everything we can to make the application and recruitment process as straightforward, inclusive and accessible as possible. 

To do this, the university needs your support. We’re asking PGRs to share their experiences of applying for postgraduate research at Nottingham.  

Please complete the PGR survey if you’re eligible. 

By sparing 10 minutes, you will help us improve the PGR recruitment journey.  And there’s a £100 Amazon voucher up for grabs in a prize draw for those who complete the survey.  

Please tell us about your application experience and the barriers you might have faced. Every response matters – your perspective and experiences will offer personal insights that other researchers may have not considered. 

It would also be helpful for supervisors to share the above link and encourage their PGR students to complete the survey. 

Professor Richard Graham, Interim Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Researcher Academy and Researcher Career Development, said: “Postgraduate researchers are a key part of our research community.

PGRs make a huge contribution to our research outputs, impacts and community. Our diverse PGR population is also essential to our vibrant and inclusive research culture.

This survey will help us ensure our PGR admissions are as equitable, inclusive and effective as possible.”
