Every term, the University organises free open lectures on a wide variety of topics and aimed at a general audience.
Some lectures require pre-booking. Where tickets are needed, this is also indicated in the 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 also available here on our web pages. As the pages are updated frequently, they will publicise lectures which we were unable to include in the leaflet.
To reflect our commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our community the University will not be hosting any open lectures on campus during Summer term 2020. However, we will be sharing some of our previously recorded lectures and other digital content for you to watch at home. Please come back to this web page for regular updates.
If you have enjoyed watching last year's 3-minute thesis entries, why not watch this year's event and have your chance to vote for the audience choice award'?
