Postgraduates represent roughly 30% of our student body at Southampton, and we are here for you.

As a postgraduate student at the University of Southampton, you are automatically represented by the Postgraduate Committee. We exist to represent you to the Union and the University, to hold regular social events so you can meet and mingle with fellow postgraduates, and finally to make you feel part of a community here at Southampton.

Why not join our Facebook group to stay up to date with our activities and events? Here you'll find other postgraduate students, as well as your officers available to answer any questions you might have!
