Upcoming Seminars

Want to deliver a seminar?

The Big Picture Seminar Series is growing into a full programme of events, attracting high profile speakers, covering a wide range of topics, appealing to both students and general public, meaning we are always searching for new speakers. 

This is why we need you!

The lectures tend to usually take place on a Wednesday evening, from 5:15pm until 6:15pm. 
The usual format is for speakers to arrive at 4:15pm for a welcome tea with the Pro Vice Chancellor, then deliver their talk for approximately 45 minutes and then takes questions from the floor.  

The talks take place in lecture theatres, which are fully equipped to handle PowerPoint presentations and so on.

The topic of your presentation is largely down to your own preferences. 
We would ask that you provide us with a short biography or short paragraph to be used for marketing purposes.
This can be either biographical or related to your presentation topic, or indeed a combination of the two.
