Inaugural PhB Symposium
Friday, 26 August 2016, 6:00-8:00 PM
Lecture Theatre 2 - Manning Clark Centre, The Australian National University, Canberra, ACT 2600
The Australian National University (ANU) is delighted to host the inaugural PhB Symposium on Friday 26 August 2016 from 6.00pm in the Manning Clarke Lecture Theatre 2.
The PhB programme at ANU is one of the most prestigious and rewarding degrees across Australia, offering unique opportunities to participate in real research at the undergraduate level. Students are required to complete a few research projects throughout, and these often take place at the frontiers of the field with one-on-one guidance from experts. Currently the PhB covers the sciences, arts, and Asia-Pacific studies.
The PhB Symposium at ANU is an exciting chance for the broader community to hear about the rewards of the Bachelor of Philosophy (PhB) from the students themselves. PhB students will give short presentations on research projects they’ve taken across the sciences, arts, and Asia-Pacific studies, showcasing the many opportunities offered in PhB and tertiary education overall. Tickets are limited, but both students and the broader community are welcome to attend this short symposium. The presentations should finish by 7.30pm and some nibbles will be provided in the Foyer where people can talk to PhB students and staff. The event will be launched by the ANU Vice Chancellor, Professor Brian Schmidt.
