Higher Education Research Society
We are a group of Research Students from the Institute of Education. Our field of interest and research is Higher Education. We've been having several meetings in the past few months and came up with the necessity of creating a student society in UCL in our field, since there is none thus far.
The purpose of this society is to bring together all the postgraduate students (masters and research) not only from the IOE but from other UCL departments which are currently working with topics related to Higher Education in general. We want to share our research interests with our peers, to get to know other students with similar interests and further to have a student space for reflection and communication.
We want to create a network where we can all share events, conferences, and general academic information from our field and from our countries of origin so we can broaden our scope and perspectives. We want to open a channel of communication from students and for students where we can promote our research activity and learn from each other. Finally, our aim is to make a Higher Education student community within our university.
The society will meet during term time once a month in a seminar group where students are encouraged to present an aspect of their work or research interests and holds it open for discussion in an informal setting. These monthly meetings will be a great opportunity to meet other research students and to get feedback from our peers.
