Poster competition: call for posters

Students who attend Summer School in past years have mentioned that they missed a platform for discussing their own and others' research work, so we decided to include a poster session in June 2017. To add to the session, we're making it a light-hearted psoter competition! To learn more about the competition, the judging criteria and to enter, please download our poster (PDF) (meta!)  or go to the poster competition registration page

What is SGSSS Summer School? 

Every June, the SGSSS host the popular Summer School in Edinburgh. The Summer School is open to all post graduate students in Social Sciences at any University, although the emphasis is on those matriculated at Scottish institutions of higher education. The Summer School programme is a mix of courses on qualitative and quantitative methods, skills and with a strong social aspect. This is one of the best opportunities of the calendar year to meet other PhD students! Content for Summer School has been contributed by academic colleagues from across Scotland, but we have also include external course providers.
