On Wednesday 4th June, the 3rd Annual SSEHS Postgraduate Research Student Conference was held with great success.  A total of 40 2nd year full-time and 3rd year part-time students participated in poster and oral presentations showcasing research conducted in diverse areas within the School.

All presentations were judged by experts in relevant fields and two posters prepared by Emma Sharpe and Mira Soni were  the winners of the competition (see photo).  

The conference was extremely well attended by staff and postgraduate students. The venue provided a unique opportunity for all attendees to network intellectually and socially. Overall, the conference received very positive feedback and we already look forward to it again next academic year.
