3rd UKCGE Conference on Postgraduate Taught Education
The 3rd UKCGE Conference on Postgraduate Taught Education will take place in-person at the University of Nottingham
Across the sector, students undertake postgraduate taught education for a variety of reasons: professional accreditation for a specific career path; a route into research; experience in an overseas university; to continue studying a subject they enjoy, or to try out something new. PGT demographics can be very diverse, with students coming from a wide range of backgrounds – as well as the most popular level of study for international students seeking experience overseas, these courses attract mature students returning to study after a career break, or others balancing part-time study with work to improve their professional skills.
This means that, unlike their undergraduate counterparts, it is very difficult for organisations to manage all of the expectations of this cohort, to prepare effective inductions that cater for everybody’s needs, to anticipate their skills and experience, and to design effective teaching and assessment that builds upon prior learning, as well as to curate support for careers and employability. This third UKCGE Conference on Postgraduate Taught Education builds upon and extends previous conferences on PGT research and practice, as well as resilience in masters education, to develop an academic and professional services community of practice in effective support for PGT students with diverse experience and expectations. It sets out to explore how the sector can take a more inclusive approach to preparation and planning for the various milestones of the PGT student journey.
