Testimonials from former student presenters:
'The IGS Postgraduate Day (2018) was a very profitable experience for me, in particular because of my background. I am a biomedical engineer, and the project I was presenting was quite technical, so it was really interesting for me to see other more clinical studies in the context of successful ageing. The feedback given during the talks was certainly useful for all presenters, specially for those whose work was just starting. The presentations given by former PhD students were inspiring and a great opportunity to learn about some useful research tools, which I am sure I will use for my own project. It was also a fantastic opportunity to do some networking with the rest of speakers and organisers. Overall a really good and recommended experience that I will probably be repeating myself!'

'The IGS Postgraduate study day provided a valuable opportunity to present, and to gain feedback, on my early stage research to an audience of my peers. The keynote speakers provided insight and pertinent advice on the successful completion of a Ph.D. Coming together at the Study Day as an academic community, to network and to listen to other student’s research pursuits, from a diverse range of disciplines, proved an interesting, worthwhile and enjoyable experience.'

Thanks to everyone involved in the 2016 IGS Postgrad Study Day for a brilliant and inspiring event. There was a range of stimulating multidisciplinary topics that benefitted me in learning more about older adults and in developing my research further. The venue and event was excellently organised with a warm welcome provided to all those in attendance. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Study Day to peers, colleagues and those interested in this exciting field of research. Congratulations once again and I wish you continued success.
