Global Winner 2017

“Attending the 2017 Summit was an amazing experience marked by a rich exchange of ideas among undergraduates brought together by a passion for academia. It is fantastic that programs like the Undergraduate Awards exist and provide a platform for celebrating the achievements of students at an undergraduate level. I will look back on the Summit as a high point in my academic life and I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to engage with the other incredibly talented and enthusiastic attendees.”

Welcome

The Undergraduate Awards (UA) are delighted to welcome you to the 9th Global Undergraduate Summit which will be held in Dublin on 12th-14th November 2018.

At The Global Undergraduate Summit, top award-winning students from all over the world present their work, creating powerful discourse across 25 different disciplines. Cultural awareness and understanding is enhanced as student delegates representing over 45 different countries attend. This is a unique opportunity for students to network and share cross-disciplinary research in a vibrant and engaging space. 

This year, The Global Undergraduate Summit will incorporate nine themes under a central idea: Know Your Worth, Know Your Responsibility. Delegates – students, academics, and industry members alike – will be invited to consider their research in the context of themes including Food Integrity & Sustainability, Diversity & Inclusion, and Future Finances. In collaboration across disciplines, guests at the Summit will come together to innovate in addressing problems faced around the world.

We look forward to meeting you in November to celebrate the world’s finest undergraduate research and to share in the development of solutions to issues of global importance.

University/Deans of Research Programme

As universities around the world develop new forms of learning and further integrate undergraduate research into their courses, faculty and students have new opportunities to create and discover research.  Yet integrating such research into existing programmes and disciplines with less of a research focus is a key pedagogical challenge, and such content must be engaging for students, must offer opportunity for collaboration and critical thinking, while also addressing relevant key research questions.

The Global Undergraduate Summit will bring together world leading faculty who are strong advocates of undergraduate research in their respective institutions, and also active members of regional undergraduate research groups; as well as some of the brightest and best international undergraduate research students, to investigate these areas. Uniquely enabling them to network, frankly exchange ideas and explore best practice and ways in which universities can further embed such research into their programmes.

Your Future Programme

The Global Undergraduate Summit brings together some of the brightest and best research students from across the world to provide a platform to showcase their work, and at the same time enable them to create a network with like minded students as well as academics, corporates and university staff with a passion for research.

These sessions will offer an opportunity to share in some fascinating exchanges and learn from some amazing contributors. The content has been specifically co-created with key careers staff and academics from a number of our partner and affiliate universities, to enable students gain further skills to prepare for life after graduation, be that in further study, or the workplace. Some of the topics to be covered include:

 

  • Career Pathways
  • Postgraduate Research
  • CV and Interview tip
  • Enhancing your skill set
  • Health, wellbeing and mindfulness
