PGR Circles

Connecting our PGR community during a challenging time

PGR Circles is a Bristol Doctoral College initiative that helps postgraduate researchers (PGRs) meet their peers online, socialise in small groups and form lasting connections.

Applications for this pilot scheme opened in late 2020, and the first circles were established in early 2021.

At present, we're not accepting new applications to take part in this pilot initiative. However, we will be looking to fill places if any of the current participants drop out of a circle during the academic year.

If you’d like to find out more about the scheme, or add your name to our waiting list, please visit our PGR Circles SharePoint page.

PGR Community Fund

Do you have an idea for a non-research-related event or activity that could bring PGRs together — online? Find out how you can get funding and support from the BDC.
