Psychology 2016 Winter PhD Conference

This conference is a continuation of the series of successful PhD student conferences held since December 2014, and offers an opportunity for PhD students to present their research to the wider Department, including both fellow students and faculty members.

This not only gives them practice in presenting their research to an academic audience, but also provides a valuable exchange of ideas and promotes discussion between researchers with a wide range of expertise. The abstract of the conference will give you an insight in to the intriguing research being conducted within our Department and there will be videos of many of the talks available after the event.
