Newcastle University hosts the UK’s first Vietnamese Doctorial Symposium

On Saturday 03 March, Vietnamese Doctoral students from across the UK gathered at Newcastle University to present their research to one another.

The Association of Vietnamese Doctoral Researchers organised the symposium in the hopes of providing the students with an informal and friendly opportunity to network and collaborate. The University were happy to offer their support by providing a conference room where students would easily be able to share their ideas. Alongside the conference room, an online platform was also provided to allow those who were unable to travel to Newcastle due to the snowstorms, to participate in the event.

Consequently, the symposium attracted participants from 11 universities from across the UK, with 6 presentations being given on a variety of topics, including management, tourism, political science, medical education, marketing, and teacher education.

The event, which was a huge success, allowed the students to discuss their research ideas, practise their presentation skills, and receive critical feedback on their work. As a result, one doctorial researcher won the first prize for the Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT) at UWE, crediting her success to the rehearsal given at the symposium.

Due to its success, The Association of Vietnamese Doctoral Researchers hope to make this an annual event, giving support to Vietnamese students in their doctoral journey.
