Welcome to the Birkbeck Graduate School events page

The Graduate Research School regularly organises events which are primarily social events but which provide opportunities to discuss the issues of the day and your research with your colleagues.

The next College wide event will be a roundtable discussion on Research Ethics between a number of Research Ethics officers from departments across the College. We will discuss what research ethics are, when you should be mindful of them, how to get ethical approval, and unexpected ways in which ethics may come into play in your research. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions from the audience, so come prepared!

This event will take place on Tuesday 28 February at 6pm in room G04, 43 Gordon Square and is open to all current research students. To book a place, please visit the BGRS Workshop Calendar.
