Graduate College is the only college in Lancaster University to take postgraduate students rather than undergraduates. Until its creation in 1992 each of the other eight colleges also took postgraduates. The university had a lot of success in postgraduate work, and it was felt postgraduates should have their own college for social, administrative and accommodation purposes. All incoming postgraduate students are members of the college, even those Lancaster graduates who were members of other colleges when undergraduates.

The college bar, the Herdwick , is known for its large beer festivals, its constant supply of real ale and a variety of whiskies. It is listed in the Good Beer Guide , one of three student bars in the country to be included. The bar is also known for its weekly live music nights, usually every Thursday when a mix of student and non-student bands play.

Graduate College is currently branded as LU GRAD. The college is currently planning to adopt a new name, which is as of yet undecided, by the beginning of the 2018/19 academic year. [1]

Governance[ edit ]

According to the college constitution the aims of the college are “to stimulate and support graduate studies at the University, to enhance the University’s national and international academic reputation, and to advance knowledge, wisdom and understanding”.

Postgraduate Board[ edit ]

Instead of having a JCR , there is a Postgraduate Board (PG Board). Unlike the University of York , where the Graduate Students’ Association is separate from the main students’ union, the PG Board is a sub-committee of the Students’ Union , of which all postgraduates are full members. [2] The PG Board instead operates more as a residents’ association, focusing mainly on social events and residential welfare issues; it relies heavily on its parent organisation for most services. The PG Board is similar in structure to the JCR Executives seen in the undergraduate colleges, but is led by a chair (rather than a president), and includes a number of Members without Portfolio . [3]

Activities[ edit ]

  • Day trips: The Graduate College hosts and coordinates a number of trips for students throughout the academic year, which are announced on their site, with tickets going on sale around two weeks prior to the date of the trip. [4]
  • New Cafe: The New Cafe is an opportunity for PhD students to present their work to other PhDs. Students hear about researches from their peers.
  • Postgraduate Research Conference: The conference is a multidisciplinary conference providing delegates with the opportunity to present to, network with and learn from other students from other disciplines.
