Nominations wanted for the University’s INSIGHTS Public Lecture Prize 2019 – Deadline 30th June 2019

The Graduate School is seeking nominations for the University’s INSIGHTS Public Lecture Prize 2019 – Deadline 30th June 2019

We are inviting nominations for research students (PhD, MD, DClin.Psy… including those who have completed their thesis in the previous 6 months) to present at this year’s Insights public lecture series. Judges will be looking for students who have a talent for presenting and are capable of delivering a public lecture with clarity, professionalism and in an engaging way. The best six of the nominees will receive specialist training in public speaking and content selection, after which a shortlist of three final winners will be chosen to present their work in the Public Lecture series.

Nominations must be from supervisors or other academic members of staff and we encourage you to discuss this opportunity with any students you are considering nominating for the competition. This really is a fantastic opportunity for students to present their research at a high-profile public event so we would urge you to put someone forward.


This year the INSIGHT’s Public lecture prize will take place on 21st November 2019, 17:00-19:00

N.b. If the student has submitted their PhD (and passed) by this date, they are still eligible to take part.
