Master of Research Conference
The Master of Research Conference is an event at which Master of Research students in their research (second) year present their Research Proposal to a panel of academics, peers and senior staff.
This event was held on the 2nd June, 2014.
Your proposal and presentation will require you to identify and motivate a research problem, provide an overview of key literature in the field, outline the framework or theoretical model that underpins the study, and present the research method and sample to be used.
The conference will develop your presentation and communication skills and will allow critical peer review feedback on your work to date, to ensure that your study is well designed and structured. Each presenter will receive detailed feedback on their proposal and presentation from the panel and will have the opportunity to address constructive questions from academics and peers.
At the end of the conference the student will have enough feedback to finalise the Research Proposal, in order to operationalise the research project/thesis, which will then be submitted for final examination in October.
The purpose of the event is to provide an opportunity for second year MRes students to present their research, to gain feedback on their research and find out about other areas of research in the faculty
