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.
Late phase candidates will be invited to undertake a 20 minute presentation. Interest in presenting is to be included with your registration.
The poster session is open to all candidates to showcase their work. A poster presentation provides a forum to share your work with the colleagues who are most interested in your field of research. There will be prizes awarded to the "Best Poster Presentation" as judged by a panel of academics and a "People's Choice" prize as judged by all Summer School attendees, this year. You can download tips for assisting with your poster presentation. (PDF, 149.9 KB)
Communication and Creative Arts students are encouraged to register to 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.
The Faculty 3MT competition will be held and entry for this will be on the registration page.
Registrations are taken on a first come basis (registrations are date and time stamped when received) and Summer School is capped at 160 attendees. Registrations will be open for a 3 week period unless capacity is reached prior. Once capacity numbers have been reached a waiting list will be kept and offers made if a place becomes available.
Candidates must sign up for workshops and reading groups at the time of registration.
Accommodation can be requested with your registration and is for the room only and for a single person only. Once requested and booked there will be no alterations to bookings. Any no shows or cancellations from 6 January 2020 will result in the accommodation cost being charged to candidates.
