Festival of Doctoral Research 2021

Take part and present your research to a wider audience


Thursday 8 July 2021




Would you like to share your unique research vision? This is an opportunity to give a 15 minute conference paper about your research live at the Festival of Doctoral Research, followed by a brief Q&A panel. We have 10 slots available for PGRs in the programme and would love to hear from people across all Faculties. Whether you are already an assured presenter, or would like to gain confidence and new skills, this is the chance to disseminate your work to a new audience.

Who can apply?

All current doctoral research students, including those undertaking professional doctorates, who have not graduated before 1 June 2021.


To apply, please send the following to by 12:00pm on Friday 2 July.


  • 200 word abstract proposing the title, content and structure of the presentation
  • Your name, student number, faculty and department/school

Presenters will be selected from the entrants and you will be notified a few days before the event.


The 10 selected presenters will each receive a £25.00 online voucher.
