Travel and conferences

Research students in the School of English attend a range of national and international conferences to give papers and posters, as well as making short visits to other institutions to use or consult essential resources for their research. 

In order to support research students with these activities, the Graduate School provides funding in the form of a prestigious Graduate School Travel Prize and some funds are also available to research students in the School of English.
