UCL Graduate School Review Competition 2006

In March 2006, we ran a review writing competition, created with graduate research students in the Arts & Humanities, Laws and Social & Historical Sciences faculties in mind. It was conceived as an alternative to the Graduate School Poster Competition, which is not necessarily appropriate for students in these faculties. The two competitions took place on the same day.

Graduates were invited to write a review which was judged by a panel of UCL academics. Submissions were printed on A3 card and displayed alongside entries for the Poster Competition.

Those that were submitted this year were all broadly competent. However none this year managed to achieve all the aims of writing for a particular type of journal, keeping to the word-limit, and attracting the interest of the reader by expressing key points quickly and strongly.

  •  Professor Tim Mathews, Vice-Head, Graduate School & Dept of French
  •  Dr Penny Florence, Slade School of Fine Art
