Testimonials

“I loved the Student Research Fair, it was such a great experience. Winning the poster competition was a highlight and I love the big cheque! More importantly, being able to share my work with everyone else at the UNSW was such a rewarding experience. Thanks for organising the event!”

Wilson Hua
Honours student

“Just wanted to say well done on putting on a fantastic Student Research Fair. It was great to experience such a buzz in The Place.

Thank you for the opportunity to participate. I enjoyed the chance to talk about my research to interested students and academics. I was pleasantly surprised by how engaged people were, and I was impressed by the questions asked. And it was a wonderful opportunity to interact with academics from other Schools, who were generous to give up their time to support the Fair. It was also nice to get to see what other HDR students are working on through all the other posters, which looked fantastic - a great showcase of HDR and Honours research.

I know it is a huge effort to pull off an event like this so smoothly, so thanks for doing superb job and thanks also to the volunteers. I'll definitely recommend it to others in the future!”
