BILT Student Fellows
BILT engages a team of Student Fellows on an annual basis to work on specific project themes.
In conjunction with their projects the Student Fellows publish blog posts and podcasts throughout the year and their individual styles shine through, you can find them all in the BILT blog category Student Voice and the BILT Broadcast.
The Student Research Journal, a BILT Student Fellow initiative, was launched in 2019 and there are now 3 Issues available to read online. Seeing the enthusiasm of contributors to the Student Research Journal, the BILT Student Fellows wanted to provide another opportunity for students to showcase their research, so they launched the Student Research Festival, an online event which has run for two years.
