PGR Placements

At LSSI, we facilitate and promote research collaborations and engagement, both across the University of Leeds, and with external partner organisations. As part of this, our PGR Placement Scheme enables our Postgraduate Researchers (PGRs) to partner and collaborate with non-academic organisations. Through collaboration, both the PGR and the partner organisation can gain expertise, share knowledge, gain appreciation of different professional values and cultures, and explore the application of research in professional practice.

If you have any questions relating to the PGR Placement Scheme, please contact Cheryl Harris (C.A.Harris@leeds.ac.uk)
