New MyPGR system

As you might have seen from the University news there is a New University PGR Management System on it's way.

The current PGR system PROSE will be turned off on 31st July and the new system will go live in August.

In future PGRs will be able to book on to any of our training sessions via MyPGR and staff will continue to use a separate booking form.

We'll let you know when our 2019 Autumn term courses go live for booking.

Finding data with Passport
