PGR Research Culture & Community Seminar Programme: Covid Coffee, Cake & Chat Sessions

Improving the Postgraduate Research Experience at the University of Hull

Covid Coffee, Cake & Chat Weekly Online Sessions

Our PGR student community has initiated a weekly Coffee, Cake & Chat online group (using MS Teams) after understanding how isolated some off-campus students are in the current COVID-19 pandemic. Fully supported by the Doctoral College and faculties, the group meets for an hour on Tuesdays at 10am UK time.

"We introduce one another, a new group member introduces her/himself. Then we write 3 words in the chat to describe how the pandemic is impacting us emotionally. The rest of the time is spent in an exchange on these words and what they mean to us. Through sharing common experiences as sense of community arises. A WhatsApp group to provide mutual support between meetings has also been set up and is frequently used".

All are welcome
