Graduate Students Association

The GSA is an independent student organisation representing your interests to the University, offering support, and organising trips and events for postgraduates.

Check out their Postgraduate Welcome Week programme and visit their New Students pages for more information and advice to help you get settled in.

College activities

All our colleges provide support and advice but, as the only dedicated postgraduate college, all events at Wentworth are focused on postgraduate needs. Attend the weekly socials and sports clubs, as well as workshops focusing on study skills and productivity. For research students, the Work in Progress seminar series is an opportunity to network and practice communicating your work in an informal and supportive setting. Find out more about Wentworth Events.

Sport

Our great sporting facilities at York give you the opportunity to get involved with sports you love and try out new ones at whatever level you want.

The GSA fully funds a number of free sports sessions for postgraduates and the University has a number of teams and societies you can join offering competitive or social sporting activities.
