Lancaster University in the sun

Postgraduate Research Conference

Each year the Graduate College organises an interdisciplinary research conference for Lancaster and University of Cumbria students. We also stream the event online, allowing our distance learners to participate in the conference, and even present papers.

The event also includes both a poster and Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition*, in which students have the opportunity to win prizes for the quality of their poster or thesis presentation. There are also workshops and opportunities to network with fellow researchers from across the academic disciplines.‌

*Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.
