Social Science Conference

University Centre Peterborough (UCP) has hosted its first Social Science Conference offering students a platform to demonstrate their major project work. This new event also presented employers the chance to identify local talent in order to meet their business and development needs.

2nd year Sociology student, Antonio Brown, gave his account of the day.

'My Sociology cohort was invited to sit in the audience at the Social Science Conference on 18th December. Members of industry and the wider academic community were invited to listen to third-year students present their dissertation ideas.

'The idea of the event was to get constructive feedback from the chosen panels, which students could use to improve their ideas for their dissertation.

'I felt the feedback that was given was very valuable and some members of the panel gave fresh ideas, as well as suggesting new angles of areas in which students’ dissertation could explore.

'Listening to the feedback also gave me some ideas which I might be exploring for my own dissertation. I found the whole idea of the day very inspiring and am hoping to present my ideas at next year’s event.

'Being invited to the first ever social science dissertation conference means I now know what to expect and will hopefully help with any nerves I may have.

 As a student of UCP it was great to have the opportunity to be in the audience. I think UCP need to have the opportunity to be able to hold more events such as the social science dissertation conference because they have the potential to help even more students.'

The event was extremely successful and many students from UCP were picked out and awarded for their individual excellence. It is expected that this will become an annual event similar to the Undergraduate Computing Conference.
