About the conference

This event, which is for both doctoral researchers and their supervisors, is to showcase and celebrate excellence in doctoral research from across the University. Along with a chance to hear about the doctoral research highlights from the last year, the conference includes presentations from the PhD Researcher of the Year finalists, the ever-popular Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MTĀ©) and an exhibition of entries to the Research Poster Competition, Research Image Competition and the new Research Life in Pictures Competition (further information below). It will also be a chance to network with colleagues from across the University.

As the conference is a professional development opportunity, this conference can be considered an RRDP course and therefore can count towards your required number of sessions for the academic year. You can read a report of last year's Doctoral Research conference (2016) here.
