5. Student Support and Facilities

The Faculty has a number of dedicated PGR study spaces that students can apply to access, should they need to have a dedicated space to work on campus. Application is via completion of a short survey that collects details of requirements for access to dedicated study space. A link to the survey is circulated to all students at the start of each academic year, and to new students who start at other times of the year. Responses to this survey will be assessed to ascertain individual needs and demand and to allocate space.

The Faculty has a HASS PGR Space Policy - September 2023‌ which applies to all PGR Study Space managed by the PGR Support Team which covers fair usage of the space and a code of conduct for all study space users.
