The one-day conference offers postgraduate students an excellent opportunity to hone your presentation skills and receive feedback from a supportive audience of your peers and academic staff. This year our theme deals with research ethics.

Our guest speaker is Dr Janet Holt, who is an Associate Professor at the School of Healthcare Studies at the University of Leeds.
