» New postgraduate features on Glamlife!

For our postgraduate students we have some new features that you may have already seen!

The additional features for our postgraduate students include:

- an extra quicklink on your personalised Glamlife homepage to your faculty research channel

- the ability to find other students in the Students list on Glamlife – postgrads are now listed as either postgraduate taught (PGT) or postgraduate research (PGR)

- postgraduates now receive news and announcement feeds to your homepage from the postgraduate channel.

Undergraduate students can also subscribe to the postgraduate channel, and everyone can subscribe to all other optional channels available on Glamlife by clicking on ‘Your profile’ at the top of your homepage, then selecting ‘Edit your profile and preferences’ and browsing through the list of available channels on the bottom right-hand side of the page.

This new development will enable content to be personalised for our students as we go forward so that what you see on Glamlife becomes increasingly relevant to you.

We would love to hear your feedback, so please either leave a comment on this blog or email glamlife@glam.ac.uk and let us know your views!
