The Research Forum is where the Department meets each week to discuss the latest research. Organised entirely by postgraduate students, the format varies from week to week: events include seminars given by distinguished visitors or by our own staff, or thematic symposia featuring several shorter contributions and open discussion.
The Postgraduate Seminar is a weekly session in which our postgraduate students present their research to their peers and staff.
In 2012-13 these events normally take place on Tuesday afternoons. Programme of Research Events 2012/13
