Kent Graduate School

With passion and focus / You can achieve anything


 



 

Monday 18 June - Friday 22 June 2018

The Graduate School are delighted to announce that this year’s Postgraduate Festival will kick start with a launch event on Monday 18 June at 12noon.

 

This year the Graduate School is hosting its 8th Postgraduate Festival. The Festival brings together the postgraduate community and recognises the excellence of research at Kent.

It provides a valuable opportunity for postgraduates to showcase their research, network and explore new connections amongst the PG and University community. It is also a chance to celebrate the diverse disciplines across our three faculties.    

All postgraduate students are invited and welcome, as are professional and support staff working alongside postgraduate students.

We are currently putting together a week of activities and workshops exclusively for postgraduates. If you would like to get involved take a look at some of the opportunities currently open.

If you wish to take part or organise an event please contact Felicity Clifford, Postgraduate Experience Officer at f.clifford@kent.ac.uk.

 

Get Involved!

3 Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition

We heard from PhD and Masters students who gave fascinating discussions on public mourning, Henrik Ibsen, beachcombing, crytography and fake news. The overall winner was Justyn Campbell-White (PhD Physics) with his presentation on the Beacon Observatory, which included a standing invitation to go and stargaze with the team!

Research Presentations

Seven Postgraduate Researchers were invited to give a brief research talk in front of a panel comprised of the Dean of the Graduate School and the Associate Dean (Graduate Studies) of each faculty.

Research Posters

As in years past, the standard of research posters was very high, and the judges had their work cut out for them. The faculty winners were Saeed Akkaad (PhD in Chemistry), Annunziata Esposito-Amideo (PhD in Management Science) and Esther Kiburi (MA in Music Composition). The overall winner was Saeed Akkaad, with his poster titled 'Nanocarriers as delivery systems for non-steroidal anti-inflammotry drugs (NSAIDs) to targeted cancer tissues' and the winner of the Public Vote was Annunziata Esposito-Amideo with her poster titled 'Optimization for Disaster Management - A Novel approach to Evacuation Planning'
