[QUESTIONNAIRE] Global Scholars Symposium
Since 2008, when the first Global Scholars Symposium was hosted, the Global Scholars community has continued to bring UK postgraduate students together to share ideas, hear from inspiring speakers, and connect with each other. As we welcome a new year, we are seeking feedback from the UK’s postgraduate community in informing the development of the group – both regarding the Global Scholars Action Network, which provides opportunities for students to connect beyond the four days of the Symposium, and in shaping the content of the Global Scholars Symposium 2015.
One lucky responder will be awarded a free ticket to the 2015 Symposium*, so get in quick! The survey will close on Wednesday, January 14th.
