The summer seems a long way off right now, but we thought you’d like to know what’s in store for you when you are swimming in dissertation and thesis work. The campus can be quiet, but we have your back!
The days are long and so are the nights, we know your swamped and hardly have a minute spare. So during the summer break keep an eye out for the Postgrad angels in the library and the silberrad center, who will be bringing around free hot drinks to keep you going.
As much as we would love too, our little angel legs cannot carry us 24/7, so little boosts are here for you during the day to come grab free hot drinks and snacks whenever you need it (as well as the odd freebie!).
An opportunity for you to relax and release. Sing out the stress and enjoy some quality time having fun with friends. We normally run this at the start of the summer before everyone really knuckles down!
Kindly supported by Essex Sport we ran monthly outdoor yoga sessions in the morning to kick start your week. The weather was kind to us and it was an incredibly beautiful way to start the day.
Shut Up and Write
It does what it says on the tin. It's so easy to get distracted, even in the quietest of places. Shut up and write is run by the university academic support team to give you an opportunity to sit down for a couple of hours with no option but to write. There is also the added bonus of having a member of stuff on hand for if you need any support or help with your studies.
Now in its third year, the postgrad picnic is famous amongst postgrads. We supply the food you bring the drinks. Take an hour or two away from your studies to get outside, eat some good food with good friends and peers. Last year we were blessed with sunshine, the year before it poured, but we always have a backup plan and indoor picnics are just as fun right!?
Live Music Night
Requested by postgrads in the lead up to the summer, we put on a live music evening in square 3 for free! With music from local musicians and current students.
If you have ideas of what you would like to see next summer, then get it touch and we will work with you to work on making it happen. We hope you are looking forward to next summer as much as we are!
