Postgraduate Research Showcase

The Postgraduate Research Showcase celebrates the work of our vibrant postgraduate community.

The Showcase provides the opportunity to promote the up and coming talent of Exeter's research base and gives postgraduate researchers the opportunity to develop their presentation, communication, and impact skills.

The showcase takes place in the Forum Street, enabling both the University community and external stakeholders to find out about the latest research and innovations of the postgraduate community; whether they were just starting out, or drawing together their conclusions.

The next Postgraduate Research Showcase is scheduled to take place between Monday 14 - Friday 18 May 2018 in the Forum Street. Information on how to apply will follow in due course.
