Do you want to meet and socialise with postgraduates across your College?
Are you interested in Doctoral study at the University of Birmingham?
Would you like to find out more about being postgraduate researcher in your College?
 If you answered yes to one or more of the above, then Café PhD is for you. Café PhD is a social, a research forum and a discussion session rolled in to one.
