PGR students – Placement scheme launch

The Graduate School and Kent Innovation and Enterprise are collaborating to launch a placement scheme providing professional opportunities for postgraduate researchers in the 2017/18 academic year.  There will be a stipend for postgraduates who participate in the scheme.

We will be holding a launch event between 12.30 and 2.00pm on Wednesday 15th November 2017 in the Graduate School Training Room (Cornwallis East). This event is open to both staff members and postgraduate researchers and will include information on the scheme as well as presentations from representatives who have benefitted from taking part in a placement or fixed term role with an organisation or business.  Presentations will take place between 12.30 and 1.15 followed by a light lunch and networking.
