  • The Postgraduate Research Festival is a 5 day event that takes place on the Lampeter Campus in July. The festival is designed to enhance student engagement. The main focus of the festival are daily workshops which focus on generic area of research development. These workshops are followed by faculty-specific breakout sessions which cover the topic of the previous workshop in the context of the particular subject area. As well as these sessions we also have library twilight sessions that take place in the evening which focuses on different areas related to data management.  


  • The Research as Art Poster Competition is for all postgraduate students and it encourages postgraduates to take a creative perspective on their research by visualising their research as a poster.  The purpose of this competition is to inspire creative thinking about research.


  • Three Minute Thesis 3 Minutes, 1 Slide…..Your Thesis! An 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present; would you be able to explain yours in just 3 minutes with the aid of a single slide? Each year we invite PhD students to do just that. The 3MT challenges doctoral candidates to present a compelling spoken presentation on their research topic and its significance in just three minutes to a non-specialist audience.


  • Each school and faculty has a busy schedule of events that research students can attend.
