How to enter Bake your Doctorate 2019

Whether you enjoy baking, meeting others or talking about your research, Bake Your Doctorate is your chance to show your research in a fun way!

Showcase your research in a tasty way

Have you been watching Great British Bake Off and now feel inspired to create your own masterpiece? Then Bake Your Doctorate is your answer!


Back for the second year, Bake Your Doctorate gives you the chance to showcase your research in a baked, fun, edible and engaging way. There will be two food experience vouchers as prizes up to the value of £100, with one category judged by our panel and from staff and student attendees. You will also be able to claim up to £20 to cover the cost of your ingredients used.

During the two hour event, you will have the chance to talk about your research to staff, student and external visitors. We encourage you to invite your colleagues and fellow researchers to attend the two hour event, to support and vote for their favourite sweet creation. Free refreshments will be provided along with a chance at the end to eat your own baked goods once the judging has finished.

You can enter this years competition by signing up using the link at the bottom of the page. Please take a moment to read the full terms and conditions here.
