Event description

Description

The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) is delighted to launch a new conference for 2018 focused on engaging postgraduate students and the issues they face, both locally and nationally. Postgraduate Voice: A USI Symposium aims to ensure that postgraduate students are being listened to by their representatives, and presents an important opportunity to bring together students, Students' Unions, institutional staff, and other agencies to discuss the issues that matter to postgrads.

We are also delighted to partner with the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (NFETL) in delivering this event. The work of the National Forum is of crucial benefit to the current and future enhancement of Higher Education in Ireland, and the symposium offers a chance to engage our members in their work, and help to shape further initiative between USI and the NFETL.

The event is being hosted in the Royal Irish Academy on Dawson Street, Dublin. The Registration Desk in the Royal Irish Academy will open at 9.30am on the day.




The Symposium will consider 3 key themes:

- Inclusive Students' Unions

- Inclusive Institutions

- National Voice


There will be a range of workshops, speakers, and panel discussions on the day, looking at topics, including:

- Creating environments on and off campus for the postgrad student

- Postgraduates who work and teach

- Postgraduate mental health

- The importance of postgraduate study for all students, our institutions, and our society

- Support services and Students' Unions tailored to postgraduate issues

- Postgraduate engagement, including representing your peers

- National issues such as funding, research, and mobility




A full schedule will be released closer to the date of the Symposium, including details of speakers and workshops.

The Registration Desk in the Royal Irish Academy will open at 9.30am on the day.
