The Faculty offers an extensive programme of seminars designed for graduate students and organised by the lecturing staff. Scholars from outside Cambridge as well as local speakers are invited to give papers on their current work. A major function of most seminars is to allow graduate students to present their work, especially at a late stage of their PhD study. In addition, seminars help to acquaint students with the latest developments in the subject and to teach them the skills of advanced academic debate.
The seminars are also the meeting place for all graduate students working in a particular area in Cambridge and offer significant help in integrating PhD students into the wider academic and graduate student community. Students are expected to attend the relevant seminars; it is important to review with your Supervisor the range of seminars available.
