Join Us for the 2017-18 St Leonard's College Postgraduate Lectures
St Leonard's Doctoral and Postgraduate College is pleased to announce its 2017-18 St Leonard's College Lecturers and warmly invites students, postgraduates, and staff to join us for the 2017-18 Postgraduate Lectures. The lectures take place between February and April 2018.
The 2017-18 St Leonard's College Postgraduate Lectures provide postgraduates with an opportunity to share their research with a wider audience and to raise their profile as independent researchers. This year's competition attracted applications from across the University; the final six were chosen by a selection panel chaired by the Provost of St Leonard's College, Professor Andy Murphy. The lectures provide lecturers with an opportunity to showcase their work and to develop their skills in presenting research to mixed audiences.
The lectures will be hosted over three evenings. Each evening will feature two lectures and will conclude with a drinks reception. The lectures are open to all University St Andrews students, postgraduates, and staff and are free to attend.
Places should be reserved in advance; to reserve your place, please email Brett Dodgson at St Leonard's College indicating which of the lecture evenings you wih to attend - email firstname.lastname@example.org
