The PGSA is the representative organisation for postgraduates at Victoria University of Wellington
We exist to ensure you have the best possible academic experience
We actively work with the University to ensure the unique concerns of postgraduates are included in University policies. An important aspect of this work is the Minimum Resources Agreement, which specifies the minimum resources all research students are entitled to. We have representatives who sit on committees and boards across the university ensuring that the postgraduate student voice is heard.
We promote excellence by providing:
opportunities for personal growth and leadership
opportunities for academic growth in workshops, forums and informal discussion
recognition of success in:
3 Minute Thesis Competition
Research Excellence Awards
Academic Conference Grants
We focus on creating a thriving, university-wide postgraduate community. Are you looking to:
network with fellow postgrads (outside of your office)?
attend social events (our annual quiz night, Tuesday Chats, First Fridays Breakfasts)?
escape your office/lab/dungeon?
Then we are here for you! If at any time you have queries, problems, or grievances come and chat to us. We can provide guidance and assure to respect your confidentiality
