Academic Year 2023/2024

Research students and staff participate in a postgraduate seminar series, where visiting lecturers, staff and students present discussion papers related to work-in-progress, held in the Autumn and Spring trimesters. The seminar offers the opportunity to refine presentation and discussion skills, and the chance to present emerging research in a supportive and constructive environment. Research seminars will be held each trimester under the supervision of School staff; students must attend all of the seminars in trimester to receive credit for this module. Attendance and participation in the seminars and the production of journal entries about the papers are the required components.
