The training day is designed for research students with an interest in film and television studies and there will be an opportunity for students to present their projects, meet scholars attached to the Centre and to contribute to discussions.

The training day coincides with the Irish Postgraduate Film Research Seminar, a collaborative venture between Trinity College, Dublin and the Centre for Media Research at the University of Ulster designed to provide a platform for the presentation of new research by film scholars in Irish third-level institutions and those working on Irish film topics in non-Irish universities and colleges. Professor Meaghan Morris of the University of Hong Kong will deliver the keynote address on the evening of 29 April and the conference presentations will take place on the 30 April.

Research students currently enrolled at British and Irish Universities can apply for free admission to the Postgraduate Training Day (and also the Irish Postgraduate Film Research Seminar). A number of small bursaries will also be available to support travel and accommodation costs. Applications are invited from UK and Irish-based postgraduate students working in film and television studies, giving details of current enrolment in a higher education institution, an academic CV and a brief statement of reasons for wishing to apply for a bursary.
