Doctoral Inaugural Lectures

The Doctoral College is at the heart of our postgraduate community and provides support to postgraduates across the University's three Colleges.

These Inaugural Lectures are where the very best of our research degree graduates get the chance to share their work and their passion for research with the University and the public. For the latest Doctoral College news and events, find us on Facebook.

 

Doctoral Inaugural Lectures are postponed until later in the year for safety reasons.
