Postgraduate Assembly and Voice

We want to make sure that the voice of postgraduate students is heard louder and clearer within decision making at UEA. The Postgraduate Assembly is open to all postgraduates and will discuss issues and policies to ensure that decisions affecting postgraduates are made by postgraduates.

The Postgraduate Assembly sets postgraduate-focused policy to mandate the work of the PostgraduateSU Committee and Postgraduate representatives of the Student Officer Committee. It will also be able to send policy recommendations to Union Council. If there is something you think the Assembly should discuss, or you want to know more, please email su.voice@uea.ac.uk.

The Postgraduate Committee, which is elected by the Assembly at the start of the academic year, is made up of six elected postgraduate representatives and four of the full-time elected officers, as well as the PG Trustee who sits on the SU Board. The Committee take part in decisions on allocating the Postgraduate SU budget, organising events and campaigns, and use of the Graduate Centre.

The past year the committee split up their budget in the following ways:

  • One larger all encompassing fund that postgraduates can apply to for a range of expenses including those incurred due to the pandemic. 

They also sit on the student union's Union Council, allowing them to change SU decisions at the highest levels.
