Postgraduate Open Day

The postgraduate Open Day will take place on the 15th November and we are looking for current students to help out.  This will provide prospective students with a new opportunity to explore the campus, learn more about studying and research in the school, and hear about the student experience.

We are looking for current students to come along and share their experiences, the event will take place in the Grant Museum, and will last a few hours - you will be paid at the UEO5 rate of £12.17 per hour.  (Funded students can also count the hours towards their teaching requirements)

If you are interested please email td.geos@ed.ac.uk
