The Posters in Parliament (PiP) event is part of the British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR) and it brings together a collection of some of the best undergraduate research posters from across the country. The Teaching and Learning Institute (TALI) sponsored two University of Huddersfield students to attend and present their research posters at the Posters in Parliament event last month.  The event was held in the Houses of Parliament, Westminster. Our two students got the opportunity to share their research with Members of Parliament (MPs) and students from other universities. This is the second time in three years that TALI has sponsored students to represent the University at this event.

The two students were Farwah Bukhari, a final year MPharm student, and David Austin, a fourth year MChem student. Both students are from the School of Applied Sciences.

Feedback quotes from the students

“The event was definitely useful and a great accomplishment for me to add onto my CV. I study Pharmacy, and it is now becoming more difficult to secure a pre-registration training post upon graduation, therefore events like PiP will ensure that I will stand out and improve my chances of gaining future employment. It was a worthwhile experience for me, and I would highly recommend this event to other UoH students in the future…”          Farwah Bukhari

“….it was interesting to see a wide range of research areas and to try explain and excite people about research they have little to no experience in as well in my case, limited chemistry knowledge… I would recommend other students do it as it helps you learn what people may not grasp of your subject and teaches you to communicate more effectively in a non-technical way – a key tool in later life.                                                                                            David Austin
