About Summer School 2019
Summer school is an opportunity for Faculty of Arts and Education Higher Degree by Research candidates to immerse themselves in a rich research environment from Friday morning until Sunday lunch time.
Only late phase candidates will be invited to reply to the call for papers to undertake a 20 minute presentation.
The poster session is open to all candidates to showcase their work, please consider this as an alternative to a formal presentation. A poster presentation provides a forum to share your work with the colleagues who are most interested in your field of research. You can download tips for assisting with your poster presentation.

Communication and Creative Arts students are encouraged to register exhibit some of their work but it must be easily transportable, not take up too much space and managed entirely by the student, please contact the Faculty Office for further information. We are also considering some 'Guerilla Theatre/impromptu performances' during the lunch breaks if anyone is interested.
Candidates must sign up for workshops and reading groups at the time of registration.
