Cheltenham Science Festival
Each year, the Doctoral School offers TEN £600 bursaries for doctoral students to attend the Cheltenham Science Festival in June.
Co-directed by Professor Mark Lythgoe (UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging), the festival has a reputation for getting the best brains in the country together to probe the most topical issues. It provides an excellent opportunity for UCL doctoral students to broaden their horizons, meet leading scientists and other speakers, take part in debate and discussion about public engagement in science. It's also a great experience and a change to enjoy the atmosphere with fellow scientists, policy makers, artists, researchers, the media, the corporate sector and the general public.
