School of Physics & Astronomy


The School of Physics & Astronomy holds an annual Postgraduate Poster Competition, which is open to all postgraduate students in the School.  

The scientific software company Tessella sponsor the competition, with cash prizes for the best three entrants. Posters are judged by representatives from Tessella and by staff from the School.  

Posters are of the type displayed at academic conferences, but aimed at the level of a final-year undergraduate rather than a specialist in a particular field. The winning posters are framed and displayed in the Physics Building.
