About Summer School 20187
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.
All schools will run think tank sessions on Friday afternoon. The structure and content will be specifically tailored according to schools and disciplines. Summer school participant may be asked to give an two minute, informal, oral presentation of their work to the relevant groups.
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.

Candidates must sign up for workshops and reading groups at the time of registration.
Summer School participants can commence building their own eportfolio and social media presence by creating a 3 minute video about their research. Adam Brown from Media Studies will film informal conversations with any students who are interested in learning how to communicate their research topic in an accessible way. No prior preparation is needed. This is not as intimidating as it sounds! If you are interested, please email Adam Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) to book a time.
