Design School Postgraduate Research Conference 2017

The 7th annual DesRes conference will take place on 6 April this year. The Design School Research Conference is an opportunity for our PhD students to showcase their work and share their ideas with other students and researchers. Our first year PhD students show posters detailing their research and our second and third year students give a short presentation of their work.

DesignStar students are invited to come along to the conference to have a look at what other postgraduate design students are up to. 

Prizes are also awarded for the best posters and presentations.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Admission is free and all are welcome to attend: If you are not a Design School DesignStar student, please contact Jane Purvey ( to give us an idea of numbers for the day.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions, we look forward to seeing you on the day!
