Microsoft Teams
12:00 - 12:30

The Graduate School in collaboration with the Commissioner for Public Appointments Northern Ireland (CPANI) is offering a unique opportunity for postgraduate students to be professionally mentored by a Public Appointment Commission body. Public bodies make important decisions that shape the quality of our lives, from funding the arts, sports and science to providing essential healthcare and safeguarding the environment as well as promoting human rights and delivering justice. Understand the potential impact your research could have while you grow your networks and enhance your employability skills. This information session will provide you with further information and the application process. This scheme is open to all current postgraduate students at Queen’s.
