This is a hybrid conference - register here for online session
We're delighted to present a student conference for Kingston University's postgraduate researchers from across the Faculty of Health, Science, Social Care and Education. We have presentations from students in the departments of healthcare, education, midwifery, life sciences, pharmacy and chemistry (see the provisional programme below), with plenty of opportunities to question the speakers throughout the day, either following their presentations or during the breaks.
Please come and join us to hear about the range of research KU postgraduate researchers are undertaking.
If you're thinking about embarking on a postgraduate course at KU, come and talk to us about what it's like: and if you're already a KU PGR, come along and support your colleagues!
