Astronomy Student Colloquium


All Astronomy Master's Research Projects are concluded with a public presentation, referred to as Student Colloquium. This presentation will be graded by the Student Colloquium coordinator for your presentation skills and not for the scientific content or the way you conducted your research. Prepare your talk well using these presenting tips and action plan for your presentation. Practice your talk well in advance. Your grade will be sent to your supervisor by the Student Colloquium coordinator.

Note: in the specialisations Astronomy and Business Studies, and, Astronomy and Science Communication and Society, the Student Colloquium can be given on either the Master's Research Project or on the internship or research project carried out for the BS/SCS component of the programme.

As an Astronomy master's student, you have to plan your own Student Colloquium, which will be held in the format of an Astronomy master's colloquium conference three times per year. You have to arrange your own reservation using the online Astronomy Student Colloquium registration form.

Lecturer: Dr. M.P. van Daalen
