Student Events

The Faculty organises events throughout the year to give students an opportunity to showcase research, develop skills and experience and build networks across our Divisions and Institutes.

Undergraduate Conference

UG conference speaker

The first annual Faculty of Brain Sciences Undergraduate Conference took place on 19 March 2014.

Students from all four undergraduate programmes participated, 36 students in total. All gave a 10 minute presentation about their research project to an audience of staff and students from across the Faculty, followed by 5 minutes of questions.

The aim was to give students an experience of a 'real world' academic conference. Staff were impressed by the scope and variety of research on display and students enjoyed the opportunity to present their research and learn about other students' work.

Postgraduate Symposium

PG Symposium

Our second Postgraduate Symposium took place on 21 February 2014. Students from across the Faculty displayed their posters and participated in a '2-minute Research' presentation.

Our three winners impressed the judges with both their posters and their ability to communicate their research clearly and concisely.

Congratulations to:

The Faculty presented a poster about the Symposium at the 2014 CALT conference, which was about research-based education.

Enterprise Evening

On Wednesday 29 January students from across the Faculty came together to learn about the support that UCL can offer in terms of entrepreneurship, internships, training, funding and business interaction.

This is the first event of its kind and attracted an excellent line up of presentations. The first hour consisted of short presentations from Faculty and UCL staff involved in enterprise and student support for enterprise, plus the 2102 winner of the UCL Bright Ideas competition, a Psychology graduate.
