Steering group

The Postgraduate Information Steering Group (PGISG) came together in late 2016 to oversee work to develop proposals for a national PGT survey.

The steering group has been considering:

  • proposed content for the survey
  • when in the academic year the survey will be run
  • how the survey will be delivered
  • how the outcomes will be published.

The group's role is mainly to guide development of the survey but also includes oversight of Steps to Postgraduate Study, a web resource for prospective PGT students.

The group is chaired by Sue Rigby, Vice-Chancellor, Bath Spa University. Membership includes representatives from all UK funding bodies, the NUS and a range of institutions.

This is a subgroup of the Student Information Advisory Group (SIAG).
