PhD in an Hour @ Cafe on the Corner - Explorathon - Edinburgh

  • Cafe on the Corner 24 Hill St Edinburgh, EH2 3JZ United Kingdom (map)

Join us for an extravaganza of discovery, debate and entertainment as we celebrate European Researchers’ Night across Scotland on Friday 26 Sept.

One PhD student, one fascinating topic, one café, one hour. Enjoy a cup tea while a PhD student shares his/her interesting findings and groundbreaking ideas. With students from a wide range of subjects, from philosophy to finance, there will be something to tempt everyone’s intellectual appetite. Make a PhD a piece of cake!

The aim is to demystify the PhD process and make it accessible to all. Every PhD, no matter how technical or academic it sounds, will be explained so complete beginners to the topic can enjoy learning about groundbreaking research and ideas. Whether you’re on your third degree or you’re a student of the school of life, we’d love to see you there.
