The MRC WIMM Graduate Students Association (WGSA) is a student-run initiative bringing together the graduate student community within the MRC WIMM. We aim to provide social activities and peer support for students at any stage. We further aim to provide a platform for students to present their work and broaden their academic horizons.

Peer support

The GSA also provides peer support. A number of our students have undergone training to act as Peer Supporters and provide a listening ear for those with welfare concerns.

WIMM Graduate Studies Committee

The MRC WIMM additionally has a Graduate Studies Committee to ensure students are fully supported during their period of study. The Graduate Studies Committee meets at least once per term and students can voice any concerns through the student representatives.
