Poster Day and Poster Day Online
You can fulfil this component of the PGR development Programme through attendance at one of the two options:
The wider aims of Poster Day and Poster Day Online are to contribute to a strong and vibrant postgraduate research community, and to serve as a social and networking event, which allows learning, feedback and information to be freely exchanged between disciplines, departments, faculties and partner institutions, in a friendly and supportive environment.
The events normally take place in March/April of each year.
PGRs are eligible to attend Poster Day/Poster Day Online from the beginning of their second year, or for part-time students from the start of their third year. Attendance may be deferred to later years for personal or professional reasons, but all PGRs must ensure that they attend one of these events before graduation.
