Postgraduate Research Colloquia Talks Schedule 2023

The colloquia talks are held on Fridays at 1pm in Room 208. PG students are required to take part in a colloquia once a year. Speakers who are scheduled to talk are expected to give a 15-min talk with 5-mins for questions (time will be kept by a PG rep). Speakers need to stick to their allotted time, including question time.  Question time priority is first given to students then the wider department. The sessions are intended to be relatively informal with descriptions of both problematic and triumphal aspects of current research, as well as a brief introduction to assist a general audience's understanding of the project.  Attendance at colloquia is compulsory for PG students.  The PG reps will coordinate the organisation of these colloquia talks.
