Recurring events

The following events are staples on the Wentworth calendar. Keep up to date with when they’re next on by checking the events feed, social media or Wentworth newsletter.

Wentworth in Town 

Wentworth in town is a series of guest speaker events with networking and discussion. It’s a friendly and supportive environment among peers from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. 

The events take place at Wentworth, online and at King’s Manor in the city centre.

Work In Progress 

Work in progress is an opportunity for you to present your own research. Whether you’re preparing for a conference, have a poster to present, are practising for the 3MT® (Three Minute Thesis) competition, or just want to develop your presentation skills, sign up to present at one of our sessions. We welcome any postgraduate student from any college and department.

There’s no time limit, no prescribed presentation or demonstration style, just an opportunity for you to practise what you need in a comfortable setting. Get in touch with wentworth@york.ac.uk if you would like to present.

Enjoy Your Research

Enjoy your Research is a project aimed at doing just that. Be it sharing thesis experiences, de-stressing after a busy week or just trying something new, ‘Enjoying your Research’ provides an environment outside of your subject discipline to workshop ideas and socialise with other students in a setting varying between on and off campus.

Wentworth Writing Retreats

The aim of a writing retreat is to give dedicated writing time to those in need of progressing their projects, providing a supportive environment and an opportunity to share good writing practice with other writers. 

Example projects include writing book or thesis chapters, journal articles, research proposals, conference abstracts/papers, reports, etc.

Each event includes writing and planning activities, followed by intense, short periods of writing, and structured breaks that include movement activities. Please note: this is not a teaching activity.
