Employers and public invited to judge excellence in postgraduate research on Thursday 26 June

Fifty of the University's leading research students will be presenting their cutting edge research to academics, employers and members of the public at this year's Festival of Postgraduate Research on Thursday 26 June.

Admission to this year's event is free, and you can view the posters and talk to the presenters between 11:00am and 2:00pm in the Charles Wilson Building on the main University campus.

For those who take part, the Festival is a unique opportunity to network with employers and others in their field and develop their own profile as a researcher. For the University, it is an opportunity to celebrate the strength of its postgraduate researcher community.

To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the festival, two new competitions have been included this year. The first, PhDepictions, is a photography competition which requires entrants to create an image that communicates their research, their findings, and their passion for their subject. The second, the Three- Minute Thesis (3MT) requires postgraduate researchers to distil their thesis and communicate it orally in no more than 3 minutes and using no more than one slide. The winners of this competition go on to compete at a national 3MT competition.
