There are so many ways to get involved at the University as a postgraduate student. From ways to make new friends, to boosting your CV, there is something for everyone.
Here at the University of Bedfordshire we believe that making you employable is a top priority. That is why we have devised the Student Internship Scheme specifically for postgraduate students.
The internship team provides workplace opportunities for postgraduate students and which offers local and national businesses the chance to work with enthusiastic, well-qualified and dedicated individuals.
If you want to find out more about the employment opportunities available to you whilst studying visit our Careers and Employability Service, they are always happy to help.
Careers and Recruitment Services also run the The Bedfordshire Edge awards. This is an initiative aimed at recognising and accrediting students for their learning gained through participation in a range of activities.
The Students' Union is not just for undergraduate students! Our Students' Union - BedsSU is a great place to not only meet other postgraduate students but to also get involved in the university.
From events, volunteering and societies you can sign up to, you will never be short of things to do! You could even become an elected officer in the SU itself or write an article for the student magazine - The Blend.
Visit: www.bedssu.co.uk to find out more and get involved!
Our Volunteering service enables students to get hands-on experience and make a difference to their local community. We can even help you find voluntary work related to your studies. Contact the BedsSU to see how you can get involved.
Course reps act as the representative on course/field committee meetings and faculty meetings. Committee meetings provide a formal opportunity for course reps to discuss with staff any matters of importance relating to your course and to contribute to its improvement. You have the opportunity to represent your peers and is a great addition to your CV.
Many faculties host lectures with guest speakers from outside the university. These could be anything from the former director of EasyJet to the leading researcher in youth studies.
The lectures enable you to broaden your knowledge and also serve as a great opportunity to network.
We often post up and coming lectures on our Facebook but info will also be given to you by your lecturers or on the faculty pages of the website.
