The LSS Postgraduate Society is a part of the Aston Postgraduate Research Society (APRS) and aims to enhance the academic and social experience of research students in the School of Languages and Social Sciences. It is supported by the School and Aston Graduate School but is entirely run by the postgraduate research students for postgraduate research students. This gives us the ability to deliver the kind of activities that our members want and that will be most useful to you.
The best part is that you don’t have to do anything! By being a postgraduate research student in LSS, you automatically become a member of the LSS Postgraduate Society and the APRS. The Society is Students' Union-affiliated and is also recognised as a legitimate body by the School's Research Committee. This means that you get the best of both worlds - great socials, and a mechanism for your voice to be heard by those who can really make a difference when it comes to important things like your research and other concerns.
