Postgraduate Research Conference

Each year, at the end of June, we welcome our postgraduate students from around the world to come join us in Bristol, staying at Trinity for our annual postgraduate research conference.

The conference includes three days of paper presentations from students, seminars (topics have included improving your academic writing, publishing your work, and life after completing the PhD), a keynote lecture from a senior scholar, evenings out together, and the options at the end of the conference to participate in a Saturday sightseeing trip and a Sunday barbecue.
