The Humanities and Social Science Dissertation Conference gave the opportunity for third year students from the Psychosocial Studies, Sociology, Criminology, Public Services and English Literature degree programmes to present their dissertation ideas and progress to an audience of their staff, students and special guests in order to gain feedback.
A multi-disciplinarian approach was taken, with the idea that peer support and feedback would be beneficial to the third years, as well as gaining insight from degree programmes that were different from their own. The other major impetus behind the conference was to help cement and further develop skills of presentation and communication that would be necessary to get students Masters ready and/or ready for the world of work.
The conference continues to be a great success as allows second year students to contribute to the presentations and learn from their peers for when they participate in the event next year.
Congratulations to the following students who were awarded were awarded Trophy by the panel of judges and Certificate which was chosen by the audience.
University Centre Peterborough currently has around 700 students on over 30 different degree level programmes.
