Festival of Undergraduate Research

The Bristol Institute for Learning and Teaching is now calling for submissions for the 2022 Student Research Festival (SRF).

Open to all undergraduates and taught postgraduates, the SRF is a one-day digital event focused on highlighting the best of student-created research, featuring presentations, discussions, workshops, and multimedia resources. The event, like the Student Research Journal, is primarily organised by the Bristol Institute of Learning and Teaching (BILT) and the 2022 edition is being co-managed by two of our team of BILT Student Fellows, Tasha and Dan.

The festival is taking place online on the 27th April, with the deadline for submitting applications being the 30th March. This year, BILT will be running two separate streams to accommodate as many different fields and subject as possible, while also operating a digital platform to show off student produced posters and multimedia of their research. Furthermore, we will also be awarding cash prizes to the best presentations and submissions from students throughout the day, with a panel of judges looking out for the most insightful and best presented research.

Attendance and Participation

Attendance is free and open to all students at the University of Bristol, but you will be asked to reserve your place in advance here any time before the beginning of the festival. By signing up, you will stay informed on the schedule of the festival and get access to all the online content, presentations, and workshops.

If you are interested in actively participating in the festival, there are multiple ways to get involved rom creating digital representations of your research to presenting your research in the live event. We are also eager to feature discussion and workshops also where there are enough students who are keen to participate. Thus, we have opened several distinct roles you can apply for, each with varying levels of commitment:

  1. Communicating Research (poster, video, podcast, infographic)
  2. Presenting Research (live presentations of your research)
  3. Chairing a Research Block (introducing and discussing research during the festival)

For more information on these roles and the festival, and to apply for a role, follow the links below. If you have any other questions, you can get in touch with Dan or Tasha at bilt-journal@bristol.ac.uk. Please also encourage anyone you know who might be interested to apply!
