Postgraduate Life Sciences Society
University of Exeter
The Postgraduate Life Science Society runs both academic and social events specifically for post-graduates with a common interest in life sciences. We welcome all postgraduate students (PhD and masters) who are studying for a degree or have an interest in any area of life science from anatomy to zoology. A post-graduate degree can be extremely tough in fact, a study by Exeter’s Students’ Guild in 2015 showed 85% of students at The University of Exeter said they felt stressed and a third stated that the cause was due to a lack of friends or human contact. Monthly social events aim to give students brief escape from the tough and high-pressure environment of a postgraduate degree and the opportunity to make new friends. Monthly academic events focus on the needs of a postgraduate student in life sciences, including guidance and advice about how to make the most of your PhD, and advice about future career prospects.
