Join us for the 2021 Annual Conference, the UKCGE’s blue-ribbon event, taking place again this year as an online festival of postgraduate education.

Adapting, Supporting, Sustaining.

But is this transformation sustainable? What are the challenges involved in continuing to provide world-class postgraduate education post-Covid and post-Brexit?

And how, under increasing financial constraints, can we continue to ensure that the outcomes and benefits of postgraduate education are equally available to all?

Building on the theme of the UKCGE 2020 Annual Conference, Resilience in Postgraduate Education also gives the opportunity to benchmark and share effective practices in creating supportive learning and research environments.

Papers presented at the conference will explore the lessons learned by the UK postgraduate sector during the pandemic, to ensure that it remains adaptable, supportive & sustainable.
