External research seminars

Delivered by internationally-recognised academics, our external research seminars give an insight into the latest findings and discoveries across a broad range of disciplines and topics.

Our external research seminars are held on campus every Thursday from 1.00pm-2.00pm during term. The sessions are primarily aimed at postgraduate students and staff, but external visitors are welcome to attend. If you have a query regarding any of our upcoming seminars, please contact Dr Justin Tumlinson.
