MRC Cohort

Student Cohort Representatives

More information about MRC LID’s student reps can be found on our Student Reps page.

MRC Cohort Training & Social Events
The MRC LID Board will arrange two training opportunities per year (these may be any of the following: away day, conference, cohort site visit, retreat). The MRC LID Board expects that students will arrange at least one cohort social per term.

If you have any suggestions or ideas for other training and/or events please discuss these with your fellow cohort members and your student representatives.
