Over the course of your PhD you'll have opportunities to communicate your work and network with other researchers. You can present seminars, speak at conferences and workshops, and visit or host researchers from elsewhere.
We have a weekly student-run PhD seminar and an annual conference, both of which provide students with the opportunity to present work-in-progress.
All our PhD students are also welcome to attend the weekly departmental seminar, where visiting academics present world-leading research. There are also more specialist reading groups and seminars organised within our three research clusters in comparative politics, international relations and political theory.
We strongly encourage you to attend conferences and other events to widen your network of contacts. We provide assistance with arranging travel and accommodation.
