The University of Northampton Graduate School’s 2017 annual Postgraduate Researcher Conference for PGR students and early career researchers will now be held on Thursday September 14th 2017.
Originally scheduled for 20th June, the reschedule to September enables an important addition to the programme – the Graduate School’s first 3MT competition. Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) was originally developed by The University of Queensland in Australia and celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students around the world. The competition helps to cultivate students’ presentation and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases student’s capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Competitors are only allowed one PowerPoint slide, but no other resources or props. Read the rest of this entry

Are you a postgraduate research student? Manchester Metropolitan University are holding their Annual PGR Research Conference on February 22nd 2017 and they have invited PGR students from other institutions to present their research in the form of oral presentations, posters and performances.
This is a great opportunity for research students to develop their presenting skills and meet PGR colleagues from other institutions, expanding their research networks. Last year, MMU received over 200 abstracts from 28 institutions and 6 countries, with 90 presenters and an additional 150 delegates. Students who present at the conference can receive feedback from the judging panel and the audience on their presentation – previous participants have found this to be extremely beneficial. There is also a prize for the best presentations.
Please note that the deadline for submissions is Thursday, December 1st – you can find more information and how to apply here.
