Don't miss out on RMS Beginners Competition 2019

Hone your presentation skills and make a big impression at popular annual contest

Microscopists seeking to sharpen their presentation skills still have time to enter the fantastic RMS Beginners Competition – taking place in the grand setting of London’s Natural History Museum.

Our keenly awaited 2019 contest will be held as part of the next SEMT meeting on 11 December.

The RMS Beginners Competition is specifically aimed at students, interns, apprentices and faculty staff who may have given no more than two talks outside their home institution. The presentation slot is always a highlight of the meeting, giving entrants the chance to deliver a relatively short and well-thought-out talk in an economical style.
