Grad Chat

Location: CFRC studio, east side of Carruthers Hall

Host: CJ the DJ

Description: A 30 minute radio show featuring one to two graduate students each week.  This is an opportunity for our grad students to showcase their research to the Queen's and Kingston community and how it affects us.  From time to time we will also interview a post-doc or an alum or interview grad students in relation to something topical for the day.

Grad Chat is a collaboration between the School of Graduate Studies and CFRC 101.9FM

For more details and how to get on the show, go to the Grad-Chat web page

Three Minute Thesis (3MT)

Hosted by: The School of Graduate Studies

Description: 3MT® is a university wide competition for Queen’s Masters (thesis or research project) and doctoral students in which participants present their research and its wider impact in 3 minutes or less to a panel of non-specialist judges. Distilling research into a clear form, without over-simplifying or making overly-complex, and highlighting the wider implications of this research are important skills to carry into post-graduate employment and public service. This is a unique opportunity to communicate the innovative and significant research undertaken by our graduate students.

TEDxQueensU & SGS Exchange

In partnership with TEDxQueensU, the School of Graduate Studies will be co-hosting two TEDx Salons each year at Queen's. More details on the topics for 1017/18 will be provided shortly

Banting-Vanier Lecture Series

The inaugural Banting-Vanier Lecture Series will feature 10-12 minute lectures by three post-doctoral fellows and three graduate students who have been awarded Canada’s top scholarships and fellowships.

Held during Homecoming weekend, this is an opportunity for you to come and listen and support your colleagues and then have the opportunity to mingle with alumni after.  What a great way to talk about what you do to alumni and ask them questions about how they got where they are today.

More workshops coming soon!
