Annual Postgraduate Conference

The Annual Postgraduate Conference is the perfect time to meet and to learn about the investigations being undertaken across the five research groups and to give the presenters encouragement and support. The conference, which is advertised across the University of Southampton, showcases the exciting research carried out by postgraduates within Geography and Environmental Sciences.

First years students are required to produce posters, whilst the second and third years make presentations. Each oral presenter has 15 minutes for their talk plus five minutes for questions. The presentations and posters are an integral part of the postgraduate training programme and two members of staff will therefore make notes on each talk or poster as the basis for formal feedback. There will also be the opportunity for peer review of posters and talks.

The posters will be on display in and around the undercroft (the area adjacent to the Graduate Student Hub in Building 44, Level 1) throughout the conference, and a formal session for feedback will be arranged.

An external speaker is invited to this event – resources will be provided by the Faculty Graduate School for this – however organisation of the conference and the speaker is the responsibility of the PGRs.

This compulsory annual event provides the opportunity for all postgraduates to give oral presentations to staff and students, and to receive feedback. It is one of the mandatory training activities. This year’s conference will take place in Shackleton Lecture Theatre A (to be confirmed) in mid-June.

Research Groups in Geography and Environmental Sciences

Our research focusses around Research Groups. These inevitably reflect shifting staff interests but are defined in sympathy with international research priorities so as to permit a significant contribution to high profile debates. Your research will be allied to staff in these groups and as such you will be linked to the Research Group of your main supervisor. However you may attend other research group meetings if you feel this is helpful for your research. The School Research Groups are listed here.
