  • Gain valuable experience in sharing your work beyond your field.
  • Free and open to all postgraduate students.
  • Competitions and prizes.
  • Support friends and colleagues.
  • Take part in the Three Minute Thesis competition and set yourself a challenge of presenting your doctoral research in an inspiring and engaging way, using just one slide, in just 3 minutes.
  • Get your name and abstract in the conference handbook.
  • Attend breakout sessions on research relevant topics as well as career support and wellbeing sessions specifically for postgraduate researchers.
