Professorial Inaugural Lectures

The President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Boyle is delighted to announce that we are resuming our Professorial Inaugural Lecture series in all of our Colleges. This will allow all of our new professors an opportunity to share their research with a broad audience, including members of the public, in the presence of family, invited friends and colleagues.

All these lectures are open to the public and free to attend. Each lecture is followed by a reception.
