Life as a Leicester postgraduate 2015 in review

The University of Leicester’s vibrant, active postgraduate research community participate in international conferences, are awarded prizes for their research, and share cutting-edge research with the wider community.

From evening Café Research presentations, to community outreach Lunchtime Lectures at the Leicester Adult Education Centre, postgraduate researchers have shared their fascinating research and unique insights into our global challenges. The Graduate School 2015 in Review distils the highlights of 2015.

This year the Graduate School will be hosting the annual Festival of Postgraduate Research on Thursday, 7 July. The Festival is a key event in the University's calendar where we display to the world outside the University the impressive and ground-breaking research done by our postgraduate researchers. The Festival of Postgraduate Research is open to all members of the University community and members of the public. The Festival concludes with a prize-giving ceremony, where not only the Festival winners, but also the winners of other competitions like the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) and PhDepictions will be felicitated.”
