The Graduate School is launching its 14th Annual Research Competition for all PGRs this week. The aim of the event is for PGRs to create an A1 poster (in landscape format) that explains their research to a mixed audience of non-subject specialists. At whatever stage in the research process you are, and whether you are based on or off campus, do take this opportunity to share your work with others and gain valuable feedback. For further information on the rules of entry, please see the Guidelines.
