The Graduate School

About the Graduate School

an intellectual and social hub

The Graduate School connects students across all disciplines to one another, and to mentors, leaders, and employers within the university and beyond. We support postgraduates to become ‘what’s next thinkers’, training you to be thinkers, communicators, innovators and leaders who are future ready.

State of the art hub

The Graduate School provides an exclusive postgraduate hub that values the needs of our students

Based in the beautifully restored and remodelled Victorian Lynn library, this fully-accessible space has modern, hi-tech meeting and group study rooms, a silent study area and social spaces creating a vibrant hub for intellectual exchange and collaboration.


Helping you make valuable connections

The Graduate School offers an intellectual and social hub that connects you to one another, to mentors, thought leaders, and employers

You’ll benefit from our collaborations with leaders across business, government and the voluntary sector, both locally and globally, helping to create mentoring relationships and networks, and we enjoy international partnerships with other Graduate Schools.

A diverse, interdisciplinary community

We are a community of creative thinkers and world changers, collectively searching for solutions to create a better tomorrow

This is the place where physicists work alongside linguists to develop leadership skills, where medics collaborate with creative artists to communicate their research to a non-specialist audience, and where engineers seek the perspectives of philosophers to tackle global challenges.
