Queen Mary PGCert – student representatives

David Musker from Queen Mary has been in touch to ask us to promote the opportunity for current attendees of the QM PGCert in IP to attend an upcoming meeting with the course organisers and management. This will be an opportunity to provide feedback on the course, and suggest any improvements that may help with next year’s course.

I did this myself last year, and it was a great to be able to pass comments directly to those who are able to try and act on any issues, and to thank them for their teaching and support during the course.

If you would like to be involved, please contact David directly: d.musker@qmul.ac.uk
