REES Discussion Group

REES Discussion Group is a lively and safe space for students to share updates on their work, discuss key developments in their areas, and learn from one another’s research approaches, methods, and experiences.

We meet weekly in term-time.  Each week sees a different student lead discussion or introduce a topic, and some weeks see special guests connected to the REES programme pop in and talk with us about their experiences.
