You can find all of the competition entries on the PhDepictions website here.

Hosted by the Graduate School for the first time in 2014, the competition required entrants to create an image that communicated their research, their findings and their passion for their subject.

For the University PhDepictions is another way in which we can share the breadth and quality of research being undertaken by our postgraduates; for those research students who take part, it is an opportunity to think about their research in a new way and to further develop their ability to communicate their work and findings with a range of audiences.

The Festival of Postgraduate Research, presented by the Graduate School for the tenth year in 2014, is where the very best of our doctoral researchers get the chance to present themselves to the wider University, employers and the public. The event will take place Thursday 26 June 2014.

The Graduate School thanks all of the research students who took part in PhDepictions and the competition judges.
