The 10th Annual Postgraduate Research Conference

On Wednesday 7 March 2018 the Doctoral College hosted the 10th Annual Postgraduate Research Conference which was a huge success with lots of positive feedback from students and staff alike. Watch our highlights reel. We are happy to announce the category winners below. Well done to everyone who took part!

The Annual Postgraduate Research Conference is an opportunity to listen to and engage with current postgraduate research taking place at Bournemouth University. Organised and hosted by the Doctoral College this cross-faculty and interdisciplinary conference supports postgraduate researchers at all stages in presenting their research to their peers and colleagues across Bournemouth University.

You can download the oral presentation programme (pdf 242kb) and poster and photography exhibition list (pdf 241kb).

Listening to the diversity of PGR research happening at BU was really interesting, and helped me link up with PGRs in other faculties who are using similar methodologies to me.

Clare Gordan, Postgraduate Researcher, Faculty of Health and Social Sciences

Presenting at the conference last year was useful for developing my academic skills. The conference challenged me to think about constructing and delivering a presentation that would be both engaging and informative to an audience outside of my academic discipline. The presentation also served as an opportunity to receive feedback from my peers about my work and see the other work that is happening in other faculties.

Sam Prince, Postgraduate Researcher, Faculty of Management

Presenting at the Annual Postgraduate Conference is a springboard for self-awareness, an opportunity to get under the light spot and show all your hard work to professors, colleagues and friends.

Francesco Ferraro, Postgraduate Researcher, Faculty of Health and Social Sciences
