Register now for the Postgraduate Research Association conference

When: Thursday 28 May 2015, 9am – 4.30pm
Where: Canterbury North Holmes Road campus

The annual CCCU Postgraduate Research Association Conference is a multidisciplinary event organised and presented by research students at CCCU.

This year’s theme is Engaging Research: Considerations of context.  It will examine perceptions and interpretation of the concept of engagement in academic research. What does it mean for research to be engaging, and how do we attain it?

The plenary speaker is Professor Janet Druker, Emeritus Professor of Canterbury Christ Church University.  Professor Druker possesses extensive experience of research and knowledge exchange, and an interest in the contribution that universities can make to ‘real world’ issues.

The conference is open to all.  The PGRA particularly welcome attendance from final year students thinking of going on to post-graduate research, as it’s a perfect opportunity to see what postgraduate research involves, and meet some existing researchers (as well as researchers from other institutions).

For more details and to register free for all or part of the day, please visit the PGRA web pages.  You can also download the full PGRA conference programme.
