Research without Borders is the University of Bristol’s annual festival of postgraduate research. The programme of imaginative and interactive events, which is organised by the Bristol Doctoral College in collaboration with the University Research Institutes, brings postgraduate researchers from all disciplines together to create, collaborate and connect.

The 2017 festival, our biggest and best yet, showcased the work of almost 100 postgraduate researchers through an evening discussion series, an afternoon showcase exhibition at Colston Hall and the finals of the prestigious Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition.

Read about some of the highlights in our Research without Borders 2017 round-up.

Thanks to Research without Borders, we can bridge the gap between academics and the local community and learn how to provide accessible information that will bring about change. On a personal level, I had the opportunity to make friends with engineers, vets, and biologists — a crowd that, as a sociolinguist, I do not normally mingle with.
