鶹ӾResearch Event 2024

What is the WRE? 

For many years, the 鶹ӾResearch Event has been the pre-eminent event in College to find out more about the research that our students engage in on a daily basis. From across the sciences, social sciences, and arts, they showcase their hypotheses, findings and conclusions to a diverse audience comprsing other students, fellows, staff and visitors. 

The two-day event takes place every May; a combination of podium and poster presentations. Participants are challenged with communicating their research to a generic, academic audience. 

To suppport them in developing these skills, they are invited to attend a series of workshops before the conference on abstract writing, public speaking, making impactful slides, and creating striking and effective posters. 

The call for abstracts is now closed. Successful speakers will be contacted soon.

WRE COmmittee 2022

Our Team

A distinctive feature of the WRE is that it is oragnised by a student-led committee. Elected in October the previous year, they organise the submission of abstracts, anonymous peer-review, workshops and rehearsals, as well as promoting and organising the two-day event.

It is an excellent opportunity for students to develop academic and transferable skills in event planning and organisation, assisted by College staff to make the day run smoothly.
