Event Details

You are invited to join us for our Research Students' Conference that we have developed with the help of our Doctoral students (feedback from past conference), supervising staff and Hub colleagues.


The conference is intended to be highly interactive so no matter what stage you are at in your research, there will be something for everyone.

Professor Lynn Dobbs, the University’s Vice Chancellor, will introduce the event with a brief welcome speech, followed by the Poster Exhibition, or the Research Induction (for February starters only)

All the new students which will take part in the parallel induction session, will not miss any workshops from the Conference, and will have a chance to see the poster exhibited through the room, during the day. 


All those who will attend only the Conference on the day, will have the opportunity to see the poster exhibition and then ask any questions to their fellow students presenting the posters.

In the afternoon we will have short PowerPoint presentations from 4 research students, in which they will present their current research and the jouney done so far. This will be followed by a panel discussion and a Q&A session where you will be able to ask questions, and to learn from the experience of other researchers.


Coffee, lunch and tea will be provided as well. 

Please book a ticket by 9th April 2018 for catering purposes. Also, if you have any special dietary needs please let us know.


Thank you
