 Research Open Day 2017

The 2017 Science Faculty’s Research Open Day will take place on 3 August in the Life Sciences Auditorium. The theme of this year's event is "Changing Lives through Science".​

The main purpose of the Research Open Day is to encourage students to talk about the research they’re engaged in, both among their peers in poster presentations and in public during the formal programme. Giving an oral presentation is the perfect opportunity to get experience of speaking in public, but in the forgiving environment provided by your fellow students. 1 PhD and 1 MSc student from each Department in the Faculty will be asked to give an oral presentation as part of the formal programme.



Poster presentations are where you really get to talk to other students, and the Science Faculty would like to encourage as many students as possible to present a poster describing their work. Posters will be judged on the afternoon before the main Research Day and the winners will be given the opportunity to present a 3-slide “flash presentation” of their poster as part of the formal programm​e.

​​The deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended to 14 July 2017
