Victoria College Research Day

The first annual Victoria College Research Day is an opportunity for undergraduates to share research with fellow students, professors, and the wider Vic community. All students involved with research affiliated with Vic (through classes, programs, or departments) are invited to contribute poster presentations. Students unfamiliar with the poster-presentation format are invited to take part in workshops on poster design, oral presentations, and abstract writing (see dates below). Research Day welcomes projects from any field and encourages interdisciplinary exchange among an exciting range of subjects. The event is intended to provide students with a valuable opportunity to improve the research and presentation skills necessary for graduate school and many professions, to network with professors and prize jurors, and to share work with a community of engaged scholars.
