A number of student-led conferences are run throughout the year to provide opportunities for students in different disciplines to present their work to each other, to share and develop their research interests, and to establish mutually beneficial interdisciplinary links. The conferences enable students to develop their presentation skills in a supportive and friendly environment and help them to feel part of the wider research community.

As well as the above conferences, there are a range of more discipline-specific student conferences which run throughout the year. Click here for the latest conferences news.
Each of the four above conferences is organised by a committee of postgraduate research students from a number of Schools. This is an enjoyable and rewarding experience, and provides an excellent opportunity to develop transferable skills in event organisation to add to your CV.
