Join us for our postgraduate research highlight afternoon from 1.15pm on 17th November in the Physics Building (8 West) room 3.14 and you will discover:

Upon embarking on a Ph.D. journey, your motivations are the key to a rewarding experience. Whether fueled by a deep passion for research, an insatiable intellectual curiosity, or the aspiration for an academic career, your commitment to contributing to your chosen field is crucial. Consider how your research can address real-world issues, contributing to societal progress or help stretch the intellectual reach of humankind. The journey offers networking opportunities, the chance for specialisation, and the joy of teaching if that resonates with you. Beyond the academic realm, obtaining a PhD grants you the prestigious title of "Doctor", a designation you carry for a lifetime, symbolizing your expertise and dedication to advancing knowledge. While the road ahead demands perseverance, the potential to make impactful contributions to knowledge and society, coupled with the enduring recognition of the title, makes the PhD journey both challenging and personally fulfilling.

What to expect

On arrival at 1.15pm, you will have the chance to hear from this year's PhD Student Prize Winner in Physics, as well as flash talks from some of our current PhD students. You will also learn about the available PhD projects within the Department of Physics and how to apply.

From there, you are invited to join us and learn more about postgraduate research within the Department of Physics during a poster session with light refreshments.

You will then have the opportunity to join the research area you are most interested in for a tour of their research facilities, and to meet current postgraduate researchers and supervisors.
