Welcome to the PGS site!


Hiya! We are the Postgraduate Society (PGS), a society for all Postgraduate Students at the University of Strathclyde. We are a fun loving bunch of people, who host weekly social events to create a strong (and fun!) postgraduate community. If you would like to get involved or have any queries please feel free to get in touch 😀 .

Get Involved

There are loads of reasons to get involved with PGS whilst you are studying at Strathclyde. Not only is it the easiest way for you to meet other PG students, make new friends and gain new skills but we are also here to ensure your study and research is as stress free as possible by making sure all the support you need is put in place at either the Union or the University. There is so much more to a Masters or a Doctorate than the walls around you.

The word university is derived from the Latin “universitas magistrorum et scholarium”, which roughly means “community of teachers and scholars”. Be part of that community.

You can find us in the Postgraduate Lounge of the Union every Friday between 12.30-1.30pm. Just stop by for a chat! We also host loads of events throughout the year. Check out the Events page for more information.

If you are interested in joining the Postgraduate Society come and talk to us at the Freshers Fair or you can get in touch via our various social medias, or the contact page.
