The Doctoral Conference is designed for students studying for a Doctorate in Accounting and Finance. The purpose is to bring doctoral students together to offer plenary sessions by leading researchers, dedicated workshops presented by subject area specialists, offer students the opportunity to present their work, receive expert comment and advice from established faculty members and provide an opportunity for group networking.

The registration fee is £50 for full time non-salaried PhD students and £100 for salaried students. Only members of BAFA are permitted to participate in this event so the relevant subscription fee may also be applicable in addition to the registration fee.  The BAFA membership fee can be paid at the same time as the conference registration fee.
