So what happens at the Fair?
See the list of Universities who participated in 2015.

Specialist Subject Sessions
The Fair is divided into two subject Sessions -

The Morning Session covers PhD funding in the Arts and Humanities, Law, Management and Social Sciences.

The Afternoon Session covers PhD funding across the range of Science and Engineering subjects.

Participating Universities in each Session have specialist staff available to talk to students attending about funding that is already available, and funding to be announced, and how to apply for a PhD.

Talks Programme
In each Session, students who have been invited to attend the Fair are able to attend talks by participating Universities, about studying a PhD in some of the subject areas covered by the Session. More details can be found on our Talks page.

PhD Student Peer to Peer Advice Room
The PhD Student Peer to Peer Advice Room is a unique opportunity which proved very popular. Students are able to chat in person to current PhD students who are on hand to talk to you about their experience of doing a PhD. Find out more.
