introduction introduction

The School of Health Sciences runs a monthly series of lively seminars and workshops which everyone is welcome to attend. The aim is to provide a regular focus for staff, students, clinicians and interested members of the public to connect with current debates on research and evidence and to build scholarly activity.

The workshops are intended to help students and practitioners explore how they can apply the ideas and skills brought by the seminar presenter to their practice – at any level of expertise. They do not presume specialist knowledge of the area but will draw on the wide range of participants’ interests on the day.

All our seminars are free with no prior booking necessary but if you are attending from outside the university please contact Sally Beet to ensure the seminar is taking place. If in the event of a fire you would need assistance, please contact us to arrange a Personalised Emergency Evacuation Plan.
