The news summary for postgraduate taught students.

1. Farewell events for PGT finalists

Finishing your studies in September and still in York? Join us for an in-person farewell celebration. Your department will have shared the details, but there has been a change of venue. Events will now take place in the Physics Exhibition Centre. See the updated details for the PGT farewell events.

Formal sign-up for the events is now closed. If you need to make any changes, or you missed the chance to sign up and would still like to attend, we can accept additions or amendments up until 5pm on Tuesday 7 September. Email

If you have signed up, we'll be in touch with further information for the day very soon.

2. Emergency Student Support Fund (ESSF)

The next round of Emergency Student Support Funding will be announced shortly. It is available to help current students who need immediate financial support as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Keep an eye on the ESSF pages for more details in the coming weeks.
