Student-led Conferences

Each year there are two student-led research postgraduate conferences, where postgraduate researchers from across the Faculty present their work to each other in a supportive, multi-disciplinary environment.

The first year conference is an important occasion where many of our researchers get their first experience of making an oral presentation to an audience. The relaxed, informal structure of the day, the extensive training we offer in preparation and the fact that it is student led, organised and managed makes it the perfect opportunity to hone your skills.

The second year conference is a showcase event: you can present your research with an academic poster, an art or video installation, present a poetry reading or organise a musical performance. We offer extensive training and support in preparation for this exciting event and you can also win a prize for your work!
