TYC Welcome Day 2023
12 October 2023 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Venue: Nyholm Room, Christopher Ingold Building, UCL
We encourage you to attend our in-person TYC Welcome Event which is the perfect opportunity to begin networking with your peers, and to hear about the fantastic benefits of being affiliated to this active and exciting institute. Our Interest Group Leads will talk to you about the hot topics they are working on, and a panel of TYC students and postdocs will be on hand to answer your questions, providing an overview of TYC activities and opportunities.
Lunch will be provided.
Tell us your PhD topic, plus one (or more) burning question/s you have for the current TYC PhD students and postdocs, to enable the panel to cover topics which are relevant to you. Ask them anything – from student life in London and at the TYC, to what it’s like to undertake a PhD. Questions will be answered anonymously.
We’ll need your confirmation by email to register you, and send out details. Don’t forget to include your question/s! Email Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org
