Edinburgh Classics postgraduate seminars - 24/09, 01-08-15-22-29/10, 5-12-19-26/11, 03-10/12/2015, E

There has always been a strong contingent of postgraduate students at both masters and doctoral levels studying Classics at the University of Edinburgh.

Part of the postgraduate experience here is the opportunity to deliver research papers to fellow students, providing postgraduates with a valuable experience and practice in delivering research papers in a friendly and supportive environment.

The seminar series occurs weekly, with postgraduates who volunteer to deliver a research paper of around forty minutes in length, with time afterwards for question and answer.
