Annual Postgraduate Conference

Annual Postgraduate Conference

Our annual postgraduate conference includes workshops and presentations held by students and staff. There is a different theme each year.

The theme of the last conference - held in June 2016 - was research dissemination, with a focus on different ways of presenting research. Workshops were held by fellow students and staff members. Topics included:

  • how to present research effectively
  • communicating through the university research magazine
  • using social media to communicate research

We also had the pleasure of welcoming Dr Sally Marlow as our keynote speaker. Sally is a public engagement fellow at Kings College London, specialising in addictions research. She is known for her presentation and production for the BBC. She gave a very engaging presentation on working with the media to communicate research, which was hugely interesting and gave great insight into the realities of public engagement.
