Our marine science seminar series features research talks from higher degree by research (PhD and MPhil) candidates and seminars from local and visiting researchers. 

Events span a wide range of disciplines. 

HDR seminars

These monthly seminars feature presentations from two HDR candidates.

They are usually held on Tuesdays at 1pm in the Goddard Building (8), Room 257, or via Zoom.

Days, times and locations can sometimes change, so check details for each event.
