The Faculty of Health and Social Sciences (FHSS) recently organised the 2nd Research Symposium for Undergraduate students on the 26th of April 2018. The event started off with an opening speech by Dr Noor Hassline Mohamed, the Dean of the FHSS.
This symposium was meant to provide a forum for Final Year Psychology students to present their research via oral presentation. The purpose of this symposium was also to enable students to share their research findings to create opportunities and explore the implications of these findings from a local or international perspective. Indeed, different perspectives were presented and encouraged further development on the respective fields.
18 students valiantly presented thaier papers at this event. Attendees consisted of psychology students, faculty members and VIP Guests who came out to mingle with students. The presentations covered a wide range of topics in psychology including cognitive psychology, social psychology, personality, and sports psychology. Final year students who presented received invaluable feedback on how to fine-tune their undergraduate research projects before submission.
The ripple effect of undergraduate research is far-reaching. It prepares students to pursue research professionally and teaches invaluable skills like persistence, critical thinking and creative problem-solving.
