UCL Institute of the Americas


UCL Americas Research Showcase

We were excited to host a series of talks by our academic staff designed specifically for our students to discuss aspects of the research being conducted at the Institute.

A number of students raised this as an idea for a programme of activity in term 3, as a way to connect the research we do as academics with our curriculum.

We ran four sessions in Term 3 (2021) which offered our students an opportunity to explore the research projects UCL Americas staff are working on and to gain further insights into why their research matters and how the research process works.
