UK Council for Graduate Education enters 20th Year

Originally founded to champion the interests of graduate education, the council has established itself as the leading independent representative body for Postgraduate Education in the UK. The council plans to mark this anniversary in various ways throughout the academic year, culminating with a special anniversary dinner during the Annual Conference 2014 which takes place in Dublin on 3rd & 4th July 2014.

UKCGE Chair Mick Fuller commented:

Over the past 20 years the UK Council for Graduate Education has successfully developed into one of the authoritative voices for postgraduate education in the UK, providing quality leadership and support to our member institutions. We look forward to continuing this success for many more years to come as we promote a strong, sustainable, postgraduate sector.

Event Officer Angus Burns said:

The UKCGE Annual Conference is the flagship event on the Council’s calendar of Workshops and Conferences. We hope that colleagues from all of our member institutions will join us in Dublin to celebrate this special anniversary.
