Arc Postgraduate Council
Each School has a Postgraduate Research Coordinator (PGC) within Arc, whose mission is to provide support, information, advice and representation on issues that affect postgraduate students at UNSW. The PGC represents both postgraduate coursework students and Higher Degree Research candidates. PGCs are available to discuss any concerns a candidate may have about their research, their supervisor/s, and/or academic decisions.
Although the Head of School has formal responsibility for making recommendations on HDR candidatures; this is normally delegated to the school PGC. The PGC will make recommendations to the Higher Degree Committee (HDC) and/or the Dean of Graduate Research.
The PGC holds elections each year where UNSW postgraduate students and research candidates can be nominated for positions on the Council. For more information, visit Arc Postgraduate Council.
