Open lectures

Throughout most of the year, the University organises free open lectures on a wide variety of topics and aimed at a general audience.  

Most lectures require pre-booking. 

We distribute information on upcoming lectures to interested members of the public every Friday via our email newsletter. If you would like to receive our weekly newsletter, please join our mailing list
