The psychology lab and the computers in the Falmer Library all have Microsoft Publisher, which is an easy way to quickly create professional looking academic posters like the one above, which was created by one of our Level 6 students for the 2016 BUDS conference. If you would like a demo of Microsoft Publisher, please ask Joe the psychology technician. The lab has produced a short guide which can be used to set up Microsoft Publisher for producing an academic poster and helps you understand some of the key features. The guide also contains links to more information. The guide can be downloaded by clicking here.
Further support on Microsoft Publisher can be found on Microsoft’s website, here.
BUDS (the Brighton Undergraduate Dissertation Showcase) is a conference organised by SASS for final year students to present their dissertations to second years. More background can be found here.
Click on the image below for a short film about the event, which features interviews with some of the attendees and presenters. I hope this will encourage first, second and third year students to attend! For first and second years it really is an excellent way to get a feel for dissertations from those who really know, and for third years it gives you an opportunity to develop skills in presenting your findings – all of the students in the film thought it was a great experience, after they had finished!
BUDS is the Brighton Undergraduate Dissertation Showcase, an annual conference open to all Level 5 and 6 students in SASS. Final year students get to experience presenting their findings to a large audience and fielding questions, other level 6 students get to experience an academic conference first hand and ask questions, and level 5 students get to learn about what a dissertation entails, from those with the most up-to-date experience!
This year, BUDS 2015 is on Wednesday 20th May 2015. We’ve got a record number of 18 fabulous speakers, covering a huge range of different topics! The conference will be in three parts with three sessions running in parallel during each part.
If you are a Level 5 or Level 6 SASS student, and even if you are presenting, you must register for BUDS 2015. Firstly, please take a look at the conference abstracts by clicking here.
