Postgraduate presentation days

The department holds two presentation days each year, one for MA and PhD students, and one for MSc and PhD students working on Forensic Speech Science topics. Both are attended by staff from the department and all postgraduate students.

As a formative assessment for their dissertation, all taught masters students must participate in the relevant event and present on their dissertation project. All MA students present posters, while MSc students give a short oral presentation.

Research students are required to give at least one oral presentation and present at least one poster during the course of their degree. This will take place as part of one of these presentation days.
