We understand that the coronavirus pandemic has created multiple issues affecting research students. Therefore, the York Graduate Research School, in partnership with the GSA, is hosting a BBC-style Question Time Q&A event for research students to pose questions to a panel of University and GSA representatives.  

Hosted by GSA CEO Darryl Butcher, the live event will take place online at 11.30am-12.30pm (BST) on Thursday 7 May 2020 with panel members:

  • Tom Stoneham, Dean of the York Graduate Research School

  • Karen Clegg, Head of the Research Excellence Training Team
  • Juliet James, Academic Quality, Academic Support Office
  • Pürnur Altay, GSA President

If you would like to, please submit your question to the panel by midday on Wednesday 6 May. If you wish to submit a question anonymously, email and the GSA will ask it on your behalf.  The panel will try and answer as many questions as possible. If we’re unable to cover all questions during the event, we will post answers to all questions after the event on this blog.
