More than 90% of student attendees in 2017 said they had found Postgrad LIVE! worth attending and would recommend it to a friend!

As well as an extensive talks programme throughout the day which covers everything you need to know about postgraduate study, we will also be hosting two pre-fair sessions from 11:15am - 12:00pm:

PhD Research Proposal Writing Masterclass – This Masterclass will increase your confidence in, and understanding of, the PhD application process. It’s full of helpful hints and tips to ensure your PhD application stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Postgraduate Loans Explained – The Future of UK Masters Funding and the Value of Postgraduate Study – What’s a Masters worth? And will a student loan help you pay for it? This session will cover all four of the UK’s new postgraduate loan systems. We’ll also take a closer look at the broader value of a postgraduate degree.

Our pre-fair sessions are in high demand, so we ask that you pay a £5 deposit to secure your place. We will refund the £5 to the card you used to pay within 48 hours of your attendance at the session. More details about both the pre-fair sessions and the Masters & PhD study fair can be found here.
