Doctoral Inaugural Lecture Series

Doctoral Inaugural Lecture

The Doctoral Inaugural Lectures series is an exciting new initiative designed specifically to celebrate our academically outstanding doctoral graduates. The lectures offer them the opportunity to present their work in an engaging and accessible way to the wider University and the public.  

These prestigious lectures reflect The University's commitment to providing innovative personal and professional training and development opportunities for our postgraduate research students.

All University staff, students and members of the public are invited to attend the Doctoral Inaugural Lectures.

The lectures follow the tone and a similar format to the University's Professorial Inaugural Lectures. Schools are invited to nominate the very best of their recent research graduates to present their research to the wider University community and the public.

Two nominees are invited to deliver a 30 minute talk sharing their work and their passion for research.

These lectures provide an opportunity for the speakers to raise their profile, develop their communication skills, and establish themselves as professionals within their chosen field. They are also a great way to inspire young researchers and help the public and wider university community to understand the importance of research work and how it translates into their everyday lives.
