The 6th Staffordshire University PGR Conference will take place on Wednesday 23rd May 2018 in the Ashley Centre at Staffordshire University. All our research degree or professional doctorate students are invited as are all research-active or interested academics and support staff. We will also be inviting PGR students from neighbouring Keele and from our partners Buckinghamshire New University.
What is it all about?
As in previous years the aim of this year’s conference is to provide a multi-disciplinary, inclusive and supportive environment where students and staff from the participating Universities can meet to present and discuss research plans and activities. If previous conferences are anything to go by, the posters and presentations will cover an extremely diverse and exciting range of topics.
The conference has been designed so that it is suitable for those who are early research students, mid-research students as well as final year students.
In addition to developing your skills in presenting to a diverse academic audience and receiving constructive feedback on your poster or paper presentation, a really important part of the Conference are the informal opportunities that will be available to network with others on the PgR journey.
