Research Seminars

Each term, the MCR hosts at least one Postgraduate Research Seminar, at which postgraduate students can present their research to members of the JCR, MCR and SCR. The aim is to provide MCR members with an opportunity to practice their presentation in a relaxed and friendly environment, as well as demonstrating the breadth of research being undertaken within the MCR.
