Welcome to PubhD Galway!

About Us

Can you present your research in a pub?

PubhD is a monthly, free event that brings together PhD students from every Galway college across a range of disciplines to share their work in ten-minute presentations, with an additional 20 minutes for friendly questions and answers. Masters students, undergraduates and the general public usually join too because it’s good fun. It was established by two non-academics working in Nottingham during 2014, since then its network has expanded to over 20 cities, across five different countries. It is a fantastic opportunity to share your research with a non-specialist audience, to test new ideas ahead of a conference, and to meet students from the other universities and disciplines. Can you think of a better way to explain your research than over pints?
