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.
Our postgraduates organise seminar presentations, film cycles, discussion panels and our annual Postgraduate Forum. 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.
