The postgraduate community

We have a mixture of full-time, part-time and mature students from Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Latin America, Britain and other EU countries.

This involves activities such as conventional research papers, collaborative research presentations, question-and-answer slots, organised discussions of pre-submitted papers, and sessions on the various challenges facing research students.
