Moving Forward is a conference designed by and for the postgraduate population. It aims to bring postgraduate students together from different departments, disciplines and universities, and in doing so, to help foster a sense of collective identity and create a forum for the discussion and debate of common issues. The conference also provides an annual opportunity for students to establish and maintain academic networks and to present past, current and proposed work in a supportive yet professional atmosphere.
