We are delighted to announce the KBS PhD Conference 2019.This conference aims to celebrate the diverse range of research across the KBS PhD programme. It will provide an opportunity for all KBS students to present their work to other PhD students and KBS academics and receive constructive feedback.
We expect all students in their 1st, 2nd and 3rd years to participate (optional for those in continuation category). Students can present a paper from their PhD or an overview of their PhD. These two options should be discussed in supervision team meetings keeping in mind that we expect to run this conference annually and eventually this will replace presentations taking place in the 2nd and 3rd year reviews.
The PhD Conference will help you: build your confidence and enhance your presentation skills get expert feedback on your research enhance your research community engage with KBS academics, aside from your supervision team learn about research carried out by your peers at KBS. Depending on the stage of your PhD study, you are required to prepare and deliver the following:
