Thesis Defences

Thesis defence day is also known as the best day of grad school. It's the summit, the finish line of the marathon - that joyful day where years upon years of hard work are presented, examined, and (hopefully) celebrated. Our favourite graduate students must navigate this one final windstorm - can they count on your support? Open to the public. 

The Price of Admission:
Private English schools at the Inner/Expanding Circle interface
