The postgraduate students have their own seminar series run by them for other students. This provides an excellent training ground for conference talks and enhances the postgraduate student experience.

The seminars in the 2021-22 series take place on **Thursdays at 1pm**. Talk titles will be revealed at least one week before the appropriate session.

This year the SIAM-IMA Student Chapter is organising the series and financially supporting the participation as speakers of fellow PhD students from other UK institutions.
