Alongside our Winter Festival courses, we have also launched a new series of over 30 talks, showcasing the variety of subjects on offer here at the University, and covering the latest research, global current affairs and a range of other topics.

From Monday 18 January, talks will go live at 09:00 (GMT) at the rate of 3 per day. You can listen to them at any time during this period.

Bookings are open until Wednesday 10 February.

Access to this series of talks costs £50 and content will remain accessible until Wednesday 24 February. 

We hope you enjoy these short talks and taster sessions.
