PG Sport

PG Sport is a programme of fun activities for postgraduate students, to help develop a healthy lifestyle and promote a sporting habit - all at a great discount! An initiative set up by the SU in collaboration with UEA Sport, all sessions take place at the Sportspark. If you want to find out more, click here.

More information about postgraduate involvement in sports societies:

The Union has 62 sports clubs, and works to keep them accessible to postgraduate students. Sports clubs are not just a place for those wishing to compete competitively, they are also a way to relieve stress and get out of the lab or the library for a bit. This year at least 68% of our Clubs have training hours that are postgraduate friendly (after 5pm and on weekends) and the vast majority have at least two sessions a week that are accessible. To see all the clubs and societies we have on offer, click here.


PhDiggers

The UEA Courage Project set up PhDiggers - a gardening group for postgraduates at the University of East Anglia. We were and still are eager to unite keen gardeners and amateurs alike to build and strengthen our postgraduate and research community through a mutual interest in nature.

PhDiggers launched in May 2019 with a gardening project run in collaboration with the UEA Estates team. Postgraduates worked together with Estates to transform an area on campus into a Silent Space - an outdoor place for solitary reflection.

Since then, the allotments have been through a lot of transformation. PhDiggers had 5 spaces on the UEA campus where postgrads grew a variety of seasonal vegetables, fruits, and other plants. However, over the past few years the pandemic has meant the group had to put a pause on growing. But... as of May 2022 we have secured 2 new allotments! Plans are in the works, and we hope the begin again this summer to build up the club and start diggin'!
