Current Students

Dialogues

The Graduate School runs various non-discipline-based dialogue sessions throughout the academic year to offer opportunities for informal interactions between research postgraduate students and outstanding academics, researchers, entrepreneurs and professionals.  Through these exchanges, students hear invaluable experiences and insights from the speakers and gather useful information on how to get better prepared for a career in academia or an alternative academic path.  The Graduate School will issue bulk emails to students from time to time to announce the details of the dialogue sessions.
