MatchPoints for students

Why should I go to MatchPoints as a student?

You would like to attend MatchPoints, but feel daunted by all the men and women in suits. The workshop sounds extremely interesting, but you don't know enough about the subject to sit in small groups and discuss it. You've never been to a conference before, and aren't conferences really just for fancy grown-up academics?

Does any of the above ring a bell? Fear no more, for MatchPoints is very much for you, even if you've never attended a conference before and doesn't own a suit. And it is also very much for you, if you have attended conferences and own a suit, or a blazer, or nothing of the sort. And a workshop is just a relaxed lecture with more questions.

Students at all levels of education are very much encouraged to attend the MatchPoints Seminars. It's an excellent opportunity to get a first-hand experience of how an academic conference works, as well as a unique opportunity to get close to some of the world's finest academics of various fields.
