Distance and remote learners' virtual tea breaks
This term year we're trialling regular virtual meet-ups for those of you who aren't based on, or have difficulty getting to campus to meet and chat with fellow PGRs online.
These are entirely voluntary weekly drop-in sessions, giving you the opportunity to make yourself a drink, step away from your studies for 30 minutes and have a chat with others from the PGR community.
These won't be attended by staff, so you can talk candidly about any issues you might be experiencing.
In order to try and be as inclusive as possible, we've set the times and dates to change each week, hoping that some people will find a weekend evening convenient, and others a weekday lunchtime.
You can attend weekly, fortnightly, or just drop in and out as you choose, it's up to you.

We now have a Teams Channel for chatting either in addition to the weekly meetings, or instead of if you find getting to the meetings tricky. You will be added to it automatically when you join.
