University of Leicester Modern Languages Society for Post-Graduates (ULMLSPG)

Welcome to the ULMLSPG — the University of Leicester Modern Languages Society for Post-Graduates

We organise social, cultural and academic events for postgraduate taught and postgraduate research students in the School of Modern Languages. Established in 2013 as an affiliate of the undergraduate-run ULMLS (University of Leicester Modern Languages Society), we are a small, but culturally diverse society whose members come from the UK, Italy, Spain, China, Thailand and elsewhere.

Our goal is to offer to MA and PhD students in the School opportunities to build friendships and to discuss and develop academic ideas in a friendly, light-hearted and supportive environment.

Recent Events

May 2014: Meal at MORE! A number of MA and PhD students wined and dined at MORE restaurant.

June 2014: Mock Probation Review. A group of PhD students met informally to allow a colleague nearing the end of her first year to practise her Probation Review presentation.

Forthcoming Events

July 2014: ¡Flamenco y tortilla! A Spanish-themed social and cultural event, featuring, as its highlight, a demonstration of flamenco dancing.

Date TBC: Second and final year PhD students have offered to share their experiences of the Probation Review (or APG) interview with first years.

September 2014: Mock Probation Review: Take 2. Given the number of students whose Probation Review will take place in September, we have decided to run a repeat of this event.

We are always open to suggestions for future social, cultural or academic events. Please see below for our contact details.
