The University of Leicester held a university-wide poster competition for postgraduate research students from 18 to 22 March 2019, to celebrate Doctoral College Week.

There were an impressive number of entries (over 79) from all of the different colleges – including a number of our very own Physics and Astronomy PhD students.

Once the posters had been submitted, they were presented at a poster fair, with each college presenting theirs separately. The poster fair was open to all members of the university – which was a great opportunity for undergraduates, other postgraduates and staff alike, to experience and see the research that is being done around them all year long.

A panel of judges assessed the posters at the fair. A handful of the highest rated posters from each set of college semi-finalists went through to the final, and presented their work again.

Congratulations to Samuel Frampton, from the Physics and Astronomy group, with his poster Novel Spacecraft Mission Concepts to Uranus, who was the overall winner for the College of Science and Engineering, against so many other great finalists!
