ESW Open Research Seminars

The School of Education and Social Work hosts seminars throughout the academic year in term time which are open for anyone to attend. Advance booking is generally not necessary and entrance is free. Refreshments are always served.

It is sometimes possible to participate in our seminars remotely. Where this service is available, login details will be shown at the bottom of the promo posters. Seminars might also be recorded (with the speakers' permission) for retrospective viewing. When this happens, links to recordings will be shown on this page. See also our Seminars Archive to view recordings of seminars from previous years.
