Events 11th August 2015


Calling all CDE Students.  We would love for some (if not all) of you to sign up to join us at the CDE event within BFX this year.  We will be holding a mini CDE Exhibition (similar to the CDE Celebration Event), which will be a great opportunity to showcase your research with the added bonus of being able to enjoy the various key notes and activities taking place during the day at the BFX Festival.  The CDE Exhibition / Social is scheduled for Monday 28th September 2015.  It will be the perfect way to welcome the new 1st years and we will even throw in a meal at the CDE social in the evening.  Email Daniel Cox or Zoe Leonard as soon as possible so that we can reserve your place.
