The Student Thesis Conference (STC) is a unique annual event held in Sport, Health and Exercise Science (SHES) at the University of Hull. Since its launch in 2011, STC has grown into a sector-leading platform for undergraduates to showcase their research through effective presentation and communication skills.
It’s an essential skill to be able to present in front of a large audience and this conference gives you that opportunity to do so, whether it’s a poster or your 3rd year presentation” Student comment about STC2016
STC aims to engage students in achieving their full potential through inspiration and participation. The Conference provides a vibrant inter-disciplinary forum for students to share their ideas and the outcomes of their intellectual efforts with staff, peers and postgraduates. STC2017 will see approximately 500 delegates in attendance with over 200 oral and poster presentations displaying an incredible diversity of research across the fields of exercise, health, nutrition, human performance, coaching, and sport rehabilitation.
As an exciting and stimulating day, STC is dedicated to fostering student confidence through the challenge of critically engaging with and disseminating research. With our Foundation and First Year students attending as conference delegates our Second year students make a poster presentation to propose a study they plan to undertake. Our Third year students are the stars of the show and deliver an oral presentation on the Dissertation project they have recently completed. STC is the now biggest and most popular event in the academic calendar. It is at the heart of the student experience and underlines the progressive learning and teaching strategy delivered in SHES.
At STC we invite successful SHES alumni to return and share their accomplishments to inspire our present students. All Guest speaker profiles and the Programme of Events are available on the website along with the STC video and the Handbook of Research Abstracts.
To celebrate our year as UK City of Culture, STC will be going off-campus and out into Hull for the first time! STC2017 will take place on Thursday 16th March at the Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel www.mercurehull.co.uk. We are also delighted to welcome Hull boxer, Tommy Coyle to deliver the STC2017 Keynote Address. Tommy’s HSP (Hard work, Sacrifice and Perseverance) strategy for both boxing and life will be an invaluable message to SHES students as they look to apply the skills gained at STC to their daily studies and career goals.
