Research Student Seminar Series

The Research Student Seminar Series presents SSEES PhD students with a platform to present their research to colleagues and other students from various disciplinary backgrounds in an informal setting

Each 20-30 minute research presentation is followed by a Q&A session, which allows presenters to gain feedback from their colleagues and faculty working across the SSEES region and coming from a range of disciplinary backgrounds.

The seminar is customarily followed by more informal discussion over a glass of wine and is open to all to attend. ​

Term 1 & 2 Venue: Room 347, UCL SSEES, 16 Taviton Street, London, WC1H 0BW
