Postgraduate Education Conference 2018

Postgraduate(su) are hosting the Postgraduate Education Conference 2018 on the 17th of November. This will be a full day conference consisting of panels, workshops, talks, and a Research showcase. Open to any postgraduate student at UEA, whether you want to present your research or just come along for to observe for the day. 

The Research showcase will be a great opportunity for students to explain their research to a non-expert audience and gain a larger sense of inter-disciplinary research community at UEA. As part of this there will be a chance for postgraduates to present their research orally, or via a poster (details for which will be published soon). There will be two prizes of £100, one for the oral presentations, and one for the poster presentations. These will be voted by the audience in attendance at the conference. A maximum of 15 minutes will be allowed for each presentation - this includes time for questions. 

Our workshops will consist of 3 strands focusing on: wellbeing & work-life balance, culture in higher education, and the marketisation of higher education. We're looking for academics and students to join our panels detailed on the programme for the conference - if you wish to get involved please email:
