APEx Seminars / Lectures

Upcoming seminars:

APEx is no longer routinely offering video links to Truro due to low attendance rates there and the unnecessary blocking of a room. If you particularly want to join by video link for one of the seminars please email apexseminars@exeter.ac.uk and we will try to arrange this.  

There will be refreshments provided before the seminars from 12.30pm.

Academic year 2019/20
