Competition: Postgraduate Showcase 2019

We are proud of the impact of our world-class postgraduate research and we enjoy gathering together some of our most engaging researchers to share their work with members of the public.

The Postgraduate Showcase provides a great opportunity to promote the up and coming talent of Nottingham’s postgraduate researchers to develop their written, verbal and visual communication skills. The Showcase enables both the university community and external peers from research universities to find out about the latest research of the postgraduate community.

Come and submit a press release, present a poster and stand a chance to win prizes worth a total of RM2,200.
