School of Psychology Winter PhD Student Conference 2015
This conference runs biannually each year, with first and second year students presenting in December, and third year students following suit in the summer. The aim of the series is to offer PhD students a unique opportunity to present their research to fellow PhD students as well as faculty members from within the School of Psychology.
Critically, the series facilitates an exchange of ideas outside of supervisory committees, broadening the scope of discussion available to researchers within the department. Previous events in the series have served as engaging platforms for sharing insights in Psychology.
