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.

Your next Café PhD: 

Wednesday 29 April 2015, 5.15-6.30pm in Moot Room, Law Building.

This event is open to all and the panel will include a current Doctoral Researcher from each of the University's five colleges.
