Have you Signed Up for the Student Research Conference?


We still have places available for the School’s Student Research Conference which is being held on Wednesday 29th of November 2017 at Paisley Campus.  Senior BSc Adult, Mental Health and Midwifery students and all MSc pre-registration students within the School are welcome to come along and hear about the research which is taking place within the School and also the opportunity to network with staff and students.

This year, Professor David Chapman-Jones, the Director of the Institute for Research in Healthcare Policy and Practice (IRHPP) will be talking about our exciting plans for the development of pioneering research with immersive technology and virtual and augmented reality environments.  Professor Milan Radosavljevic (Associate Vice Principal – Research) will share his vision for the future of research within the University. Our keynote speaker, Dr Carl Walker (Reader at the University of Brighton) will be delivering a keynote speech on

‘Rethinking preventative wellbeing- a community approach to action research in mental health’.

Activities within the conference will include students presenting posters and talking about their own research studies in small groups.  There is also a plenary session where students and staff will share their motivations for becoming involved in research and how this has influenced their career pathways.  The day will conclude with a prize-giving ceremony by Professor Debbie Tolson.

In regards to travel arrangements for students and staff based at Ayr, Dumfries and Hamilton campus, if numbers are sufficient, the School will provide a bus to transport students and staff to the Conference.  If you would like to travel by bus or have any enquiries regarding the conference, please contact our School Service Delivery Administrator (Research & Enterprise) Jade Birkin as soon as possible at Jade.Birkin@uws.ac.uk
