The RHD Soirée

Most months we hold an event that brings graduate research higher degree (RHD) students together. This includes research orientation events, the Graduate Research Conferences and the RHD Soirée.

The RHD Soirée is a gathering that brings together RHD students over fine food and beverages and they focus on a particular activity or initiative. We aim to evoke a sense of the luxury, comfort and refinement associated with the traditional soirée at these late afternoon events!
