Café PhD

A social opportunity to discuss, debate and learn more about postgraduate research

  • Are you interested in PhD study at the University of Birmingham?
  • Would you like to find out more about being a postgraduate researcher?
  • Do you want to meet and socialise with postgraduate students?

If so, then Café PhD is for you. Café PhD is a social, a research forum and a discussion session rolled in to one.

Ultimately, Café PhD is an informal social event designed to showcase and discuss exciting PhD research being done at Birmingham, as well as offering you the chance to find out what postgraduate research is all about.

Café PhD is a chance to:

  • Hear current PhD candidates talk about their research and PhD experiences
  • Discuss these issues in a relaxed and social atmosphere
  • Ask questions about all aspects of the PhD experience
  • Enjoy free refreshments

You may be an undergraduate who wants to learn more about postgraduate research; a taught or combined postgraduate who is interested in pursuing a research degree; or you may just want the opportunity to socialise and network with postgraduate students.

Either way, you are warmly welcome to come along to a Café PhD session. Please see below for a list of upcoming Cafés.  

Your next Café PhD: 

Wednesday 18 March 2015, 5.15-6.30pm in Lecture Room 4, Arts Building.

This event is being run as part of the Postgraduate Open Day and so is open to all.


If you would like to learn more about Café PhD, or if you are a current doctoral researcher interested in presenting at a future Café, please email Emily Rozier:

Café PhD is run in association with the University’s Postgraduate and Mature Students’ Association.
