Postgraduate Research Conference 2014

A student-led event with the underlying aim of encouraging the widest participation from postgraduate researchers.

This is a great opportunity to give a paper or poster in a friendly, supportive environment and receive feedback to inform the development of your work in the future. It is also a good opportunity to meet with other research postgraduates across the faculty.
