What does it mean to do research as a student?
When does that journey start and what does it look like at different levels of study?

This session explores the wide range of opportunities for students to engage in research throughout their undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. It provides a shared framework for staff and students to think and talk about what research is and how it takes place within the taught curriculum, what it involves as a speciality within a field of academic study, and how it translates into valuable transferable skills welcomed by employers for other career paths.

We will explore the benefits and challenges of engaging students in their own and in staff research within your own learning contexts, ranging from in-class activities to types of assessment and to vertically integrated projects. Alongside interactive discussions, you’ll have a chance to reflect on, communicate, and enhance existing student research opportunities within your own learning and assessment activities.

Learning Outcomes

  • Recognise and discuss the benefits and challenges of engaging students in research.
  • Identify, evaluate, and embed opportunities for engaging students in research from the start to the end of their course.
  • Communicate to students how they engage in research through their degree and how it maps onto professional and transferable skills for future employment.
