Postgraduate students benefit from and contribute to this dynamic research environment. It is part of the training of postgraduate students that each gives research seminars, as well as posters, while at the Museum.
Postgraduate attendance at meetings/conferences is also given high priority and appropriate additional financial support from Natural History Museum funds.
Postgraduates are actively encouraged to seek advice and training from museum researchers outside their immediate research group when appropriate and to explore the potential for interdisciplinary synthetic work.
Postgraduate students based at the Natural History Museum are registered with a university from which they receive the postgraduate degree.
