An exciting opportunity to present research findings at the Home Office.


This would be a good opportunity for doctoral students to help shape their research to be of use to policymakers and impact critical decision making which ultimately benefits the public and gain experience of presenting research to a policy-focused audience. It could also provide useful networking opportunities for their future careers. Home Office can pay reasonable travel expenses (a basic return train fare/mileage and arrange refreshments as required. Unfortunately, no overnight accommodation stay and other expenses).  

Students should submit expressions of interest to Expressions of interest should include the title of the research and an abstract of no more than 250 words. This does not have to be the final abstract for the presentation, but should include a brief description of the research area and questions, its methodology and any findings to date. You should also indicate your year of study.

The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday 30th of November 2018
