Inaugural Lecture Series

Inaugural lectures are important flagship events in the Faculty of Science.

Inaugural lectures are held by our newly appointed professors of science. Inaugural Lectures take place throughout the academic year. They are free and open to everyone. They are a great way to find out more about all the different subjects our scientists are investigating and how their research impacts society.
