Our annual Research Showcase is back with a new name, Postgraduate Showcase. This competition is a great opportunity for postgraduate taught and research students to share their passions for their research projects, practise their presentation skills and engage with the wider audience.

1. Submit a Press Release

Submit a press release outlining your research project and why it is interesting to the wider community. Guidelines for the press release are listed below:

  • Your press release could report any preliminary findings if appropriate.
  • It must be written in a language understandable to a general, non-expert audience.
  • The use of technical jargons are limited to a maximum of 2 and must be clearly defined.
  • The name of the author, title, school/department and contact details must be clearly displayed.
  • The word count is a maximum of not more than 250 words excluding the title, school/department and contact details.
  • All entries must be made by registered postgraduate taught or research students of UNMC.

A panel of judges will choose the best press releases and determine the winner for ‘Best Press Release’. Shortlisted participants will go through to the next stage: Design Your Poster.
