Each year students of the MASTS/SUPER Graduate School come together for an annual retreat. The goal of the retreat is to bring together the geographically dispersed MASTS/SUPER postgraduate population and to create a tight-knit student community while providing useful and informative training sessions and seminars.
Feedback includes – “It was a great chance to meet other MASTS students, staff and scientists and have informal conversations. The guest talks were great and well chosen, it’s always fascinating to know how successful scientists got to where they are today”.
The 2023 retreat will be held in person at the MacDonald Resort in Aviemore (15-17 March).
The 2022 Retreat was held online (16-18 March). Check out our draft programme.
