UAL: Undergraduate Research Forum 2017

The second annual UAL Undergraduate Research Forum will take place at LCC on the evening of Tuesday 14th March, as part of Research Fortnight.

We are currently seeking proposals from UAL undergraduate students who wish to present their work to other students at this uniquely cross-college, cross-disciplinary undergraduate event.

The Forum is the ideal place to present dissertation findings, share finished projects or even seek feedback on work in progress. You can choose to do a 10 minute presentation about your project findings or simply present artefacts and outcomes in our tabletop exhibition.

Download the submission form here.

The deadline for proposals is Monday 27th February. Email them to Catherine Smith: c.h.smith@arts.ac.uk

Last year, over 40 students from across UAL attended the first ever Undergraduate Research Forum (held at Chelsea). Feedback from attendees included:

‘The presentations were genuinely very interesting!’

‘It made me aware of the practices and methodologies of work of my contemporaries – helping to shape and strengthen my current research and practice. In addition it also opened my mind to the possibility of future collaborations and intersection of disciplines with the vast number of degrees in the colleges across UAL, and as an extend the emergent need of creating platforms that better serve the original purpose of the concept of the University of Arts of London.’

‘The questions and comments after each talk were of such high standard – clearly the event attracts people who are really interested in sharing research and absorbing what others at the university are up to – the highlight was connecting in this way with students from other colleges that rarely mix so smoothly.’

‘Sometimes people develop predefined notions of what certain colleges are like and how the students might think, so it way nice to see how much we all have in common when it comes to thought process.’
