We will be holding an Open Day on Thursday 6th December 2018 for applicants interested in the D.Phil programme commencing October 2019.

There will be talks on research in the department and opportunities to discuss possible research projects with supervisors and post docs. Our Graduate students will also be on hand to ask questions and show you around. Please see the schedule for the day on the tab to the right under attachments.

We expect to start the day at 10am and we will finish off the afternoon with a drinks reception at around 3.30pm. Lunch and refreshments will also be provided.
