Postgraduate Student Council


Welcome to the Postgraduate Humanities Student Council page!

The Humanities Postgraduate Student Council (Postgrad HSC) is a student governance structure representing the common interests of postgraduate students in the Faculty of Humanities. We strive to represent the interests of all Humanities students at postgraduate level.The 2015 Council is made up of five members who are voted into office by their peers. The goal is to establish an ongoing, sustainable system for postgraduate representation in the Faculty.

The Postgrad HSC aims provides a full-spectrum service: influencing university policy that affects postgraduate students by sitting on committees and assisting with academic issues, hosting events to help raise awareness about academic, research as well as funding opportunities, providing information and being accessible to our constituency, ensuring that postgraduate voices are heard. In addition, the council aim to help shape a positive postgraduate experience for students by facilitating ongoing student - Faculty networking.
