The poster competition is a development opportunity for doctoral research students, who present their research on an A1 or A0 poster, that explains their research to a mixed audience of non-subject specialists. Students will stand by their posters and present it to the judges (5 mins verbal presentation by the student, 5 mins judges questions) and visitors to the competition. Judges will be picked from academic and non-academic staff, plus external visiting judges and posters will be scored on design, accessibility of content, verbal presentation and researcher engagement.
