Cakes talks

Postgraduate students organise their own 'cakes' talks series to provide an informal environment for describing their research and practising presentation skills. Students in their second and third years, and MSc by Research students, are expected to give at least one such talk as part of their postgraduate training. The student's supervisor will normally attend.

Cakes talks take place usually on the first Wednesday of the month at 4pm in the Journals room (115). The student giving the cakes talk is responsible for providing cakes for the audience. The departmental charge card should be obtained from Elaine and cakes bought from the College Shop. The student should also e-mail the director of graduate studies with the abstract of his/her talk some time in advance, so that the talk can be publicised to the postgraduates and academic staff.
