Postgraduate Research Conference 2015

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

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.

The 2015 Postgraduate Research Conference took place on 25 March 2015, with the theme ‘Transformations and its Challenges’.

The day was a great success, with 11 presentation and 8 posters from across the Faculty. The quality of presentations was really high and there was a very vibrant atmosphere, with great conversations taking place.
