Biomedical Postgraduate Society

A message from the Society:


We are the Biomedical postgraduate society (BMPGS), a student-run society that aims to provide support to our postgraduate community, not only in their academic pursuits but also their health and wellbeing. Throughout the year, we plan and organise events that serve to both promote academic development and social engagement within the postgraduate community. In the past, we have arranged events that provide information on career opportunities, tips for applying to PhD studentships and many interesting seminars on a range of scientific topics. On the social side of things, we have our monthly cake and coffee catch-up (currently a virtual event) for students to meet and have a friendly discussion with their peers. As well as this, we also throw numerous other fun social events for students to take part in such as our BMPGS summer BBQ, movie nights, potlucks and more!

How can I get involved? As a postgraduate student, you automatically become a member of the society. You can hear about our events via email, or by following us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

If you would like to get involved in helping to organise events or apply to be on the committee, contact one of our committee members at our next event, or email us...




Please note these channels are run independently by students.
