"Access all Areas" in Worcester

The 14th Annual NPC Conference is to be hosted by University College Worcester from 14th 17th August 2003.

This years theme is ACCESS ALL AREAS: Widening participation in postgraduate education. We welcome anybody with an interest in postgraduate education and in particular, postgraduate students and officers, sabbatical officers and institutional administrators/tutors. The conference will be discussing some of the current key issues affecting postgraduates in the UK and will provide plenty of opportunities to get your points across. With our conference social events, including the conference dinner on Friday night, we hope you will make the best of your time in Worcester. Be sure not to miss the annual General Meeting on the Saturday (16th August) where you can find out more about the inner workings of the NPC and stand or vote for next years national postgraduate officers.
We cant reveal everything here, but rest assured that there will be something for everyone. We hope to see you there. The current provisional programme and registration form are available at www.npc.org.uk.

TRAVEL: Worcester has two railway stations, Foregate Street being the closest to the campus, but Shrub Hill is equally accessible. There are two links to the M5 and the campus is signposted from Junction 7.
