First year student conferences
Our annual first year student conferences focus on:
- making the most of your PhD: opportunities available through us and your Doctoral Training Centre (DTC)
- how to make an impact with your research
- life beyond your PhD.
The Twitter hashtag for our conferences is #esrcphd.
Who can attend?
ESRC-funded first year students are eligible to attend a conference in the autumn of their first year of study. If your start date is later than the date of the conference you should contact us to discuss which conference you should attend.
