Coffee Morning

The purpose of the Postgraduate Coffee Mornings is to create a social space for postgraduate students on both the Bloemfontein and Qwaqwa Campus to openly express the challenges that they are facing in their academic journey. This is also an opportunity to engage with students on topics relating to their studies with which the CGS offers assistance. These sessions will also serve as a networking platform between postgraduate students, the Postgraduate Student Council and experts in various research areas.

Coffee Morning Fun!

On 30 April 2024, the Centre for Graduate Support hosted the first Coffee Morning of 2024. Recognising the potential isolation experienced during postgraduate studies, we aimed to provide a supportive environment for students to foster relationships, exchange experiences, and enjoy the company of like-minded individuals.

This event wasn't your typical formal affair. It offered postgraduate students a chance to take a break from the solitary grind of academia and connect with their peers in a relaxed setting. Participants engaged in meaningful conversations, sharing their ups and downs of the postgraduate journey.

To add a fun twist to the gathering, we introduced 'Academic speed dating,' allowing students to share their postgraduate experiences with each other in brief, dynamic exchanges before rotating to the next conversation partner.

Due to the success of this event, we plan to hold Coffee Mornings regularly. Keep an eye on your email and our social media channels for future invitations. Join us for the next opportunity to unwind, connect, and build a supportive postgraduate community.
