Seminars

Scheduled seminars in APS are listed below. Any University staff and students are welcome to attend any of the seminars, but the seminar series differ a little in their focus as indicated below.

Every effort is made to keep to the scheduled programme, but changes do have to be made sometimes. Please look out for posters in the Department, or notices on the APS home page for any late alterations.

  • Departmental seminars: aimed everyone in the Dept, and any staff or students outside who might be interested
  • Research Group seminars: two seminar series (Ecology, Evolution and Environment & Robert Hill Institute) usually on current research work, by both internal and external speakers.
  • Graduate Seminars: current postgraduate students presenting their own research work. Usually two shorter seminars together.
