Open lectures

Every term, the University organises free open lectures on a wide variety of topics and aimed at a general audience.  

Most lectures require pre-booking. Where tickets are needed, this is also indicated in any publicity.

We distribute information on upcoming lectures to interested members of the public at the start of each academic term (October, January and April). If you would like to receive a free copy of this leaflet either by email or by post, please join our mailing list

Updated lecture information is always available here on our web pages. As these pages are updated frequently, they will publicise lectures which we were unable to include in the leaflet.
