Postgraduate(su) Assembly and Voice


Postgraduate Assembly, Committee, and Student 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 will meet at least once per semester, where there will be the opportunity to speak to your elected student leaders, ask questions, and for all to be involved in the decision-making on what Postgraduate SU are doing. This is also an avenue for students to be able to send policy recommendations to Union Council. Keep an eye out for this years dates, and come along!


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:

  • Events and Activities
  • PG Fund
  • Campaigns and Other

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


There are multiple other positions for Postgraduates to be represented in various forums and to make sure the PG Student Voice is heard. This includes the Faculty Convenors (4 positions, 1 for each faculty - HUM, SCI, FMH, SSF), and the Postgraduate Trustee.
