- To provide students with exposure to the work of other PhD candidates at various stages of their research;
- To provide students with guidance on the technology available for the presentation of research results;
- To give students a goal for completion of a stage or chapter of their thesis by requiring them to present their own research results to a seminar group made up of their peers and academic staff;
- To provide students with feedback on their work by their peers.
