What students say

What was the most valuable thing you gained from the conference?

  • Meeting people, great conversations with like-minded people. Also learnt so much because of the wide range of disciplines. Renewed inspiration and hope in undergraduate research.
  • Talking to people about my research is so much fun! Also I really enjoyed meeting other people whose work is similar to mine, but also people outside my discipline – so I had brilliant conversations.
  • Meeting fellow students with similar interests in research, and finding out about what’s happening across different disciplines.
  • Increased confidence and more appreciation of the research process
  • Confidence in my research and ability to present.
  • Meeting new people, and learning about disciplines I’m not familiar with!
  • Presenting experience, meeting other researchers and learning about other people’s topics.

What will you do as a result of attending the conference?

  • Definitely continue into my fourth year at uni and complete honours.
  • After seeing the passion and the difference that research can make in a relevant context I am inspired to continue studying
  • I’m going to try and get my research from my honours thesis accepted into the conference next year and attempt to get it published.
  • Continue in research and attend more conferences! It was such a great experience!
  • I want to continue onto a PhD
  • So inspired! I’m going to see if I can present in one of the years to come!
  • Motivation to get my paper published
  • I will continue with my degree, however I may now consider extending my study to do an honours degree or go even further.  The conference gave me confidence in my study and new motivation.
  • Being in a peer-based audience provides more confidence to share one’s ideas with the community. I am now more eager to communicate future research to others and will take the opportunities when they arise.
