The six research groups organise research workshops and seminars in which PGR students and academics present and discuss their research ideas and projects. The meetings offers opportunities for students to liaise with and learn from other members of staff besides their supervisory team.

Attending conferences

PGR students are encouraged to present their research at national and international conferences. Students are provided with a budget to attend conferences and workshops. An additional allowance may be awarded at the discretion of the PGR Director for students to attend notable international conferences.

Exchange of PGR students

PGR students are encouraged to arrange research visits of short or longer duration to universities abroad. Such exchanges can be arranged through the supervisory team.

Teaching opportunities

We endeavour to offer all PGR students the opportunity to take the Developing Teaching Skills training which is offered by CSED ( ) and to gain some teaching experience.There are opportunities for giving lectures, running seminars and marking, all to help PGR students to get started on your academic career.


 PGR students have their own designated PGR room in the Thomas Payne Study Centre where the Norwich Business School is located. Research students based in this room have access to hotdesking facilities - 22 computers (PGR Room: 7am-11pm) and library/computing facilities (24 hours), specific research computing facilities and IT assistance. Also in the same building is access to an additional  hotdesking area for the use of staff and students.  Further, the International Student Advisory Team provides information, support and advice to all international students and their families throughout their time at UEA.

Social activities

The school organises frequent social events including a welcome lunch, coffee mornings and PGR meetings. PGR's have nominated Student representatives with whom they are encouraged to share their experiences and concerns and to discuss any issues related to PGR study in NBS.  Information about school regulations, processes and development will also be shared in the events.
