Event details

The Festival provides a fantastic opportunity to practice communicating your world-leading research to a wider audience, to prepare for your viva voce examination, conference presentations, job interviews, and beyond. You are still welcome to participate even if your viva voce examination has already taken place.

You’ll hear from inspiring speakers about their multi-disciplinary research, how you might disseminate your work, and career journeys after a doctorate at NTU. You’ll also have the chance to share your research and gain valuable feedback from colleagues, through participation in a variety of ways, including:

  • 3-Minute Thesis competition (3MT) - for year two PGR students and beyond.
  • Digital Poster competition - open to all PGR students.
  • Research Photo competition - open to all PGR students.

This event is open to staff as well as students. If you supervise postgraduate research students then please encourage them to get involved.

If you’re not presenting at the festival, please do come along to support your colleagues.

The festival will take place in Newton building, Level 0 forum and LT4.
