Postgraduate events

We hold a number of events throughout the year where you will have the opportunity to find out about the latest research and share your ideas.

Research seminars

Each discipline and many of the specialist centres organises its own research seminar series. These are usually organised by academic staff and consist of a presentation by a visiting speaker, with time for questions and informal discussions over refreshments. You are strongly encouraged to attend a wide range of these seminars. They offer an invaluable opportunity to listen to and meet academics and professional practitioners who are specialists in their fields.

Student events

The Graduate Research School is keen to support student-led events, such as symposia, training initiatives, journals, seminars and reading groups. We can book rooms, set up mailing lists, help with creating webpages and provide general help and guidance. Research students are also encouraged to attend and present papers to seminars, conferences and symposia outside the University.

Annual Postgraduate Students' Conference

The College holds an annual research conference for students. Organised by students, it provide an opportunity for students from all disciplines in the School to present papers based on their research to fellow students and staff. This is an invaluable opportunity to practise your presentation skills and to discuss your work. In addition to academic papers, there are also panels giving advice on how to get articles published and how to get academic jobs. After the conference there is a chance to socialise at the conference dinner.
