Hurrah for our finalists!

We've taken to posting about what staff have been up to research-wise, but that's not to say that lots hasn't gone on for our students research-wise this term. Our undergraduate finalists have been busy--most of them preparing dissertations based on original research, which they presented last week in poster form. Here are some views. It was all too exciting not to be a bit blurry...

Among those pictured are students who've already got their next steps plotted. Lizzi Hart (top left photo, right) has been writing for (among others) Guardian Careers, Huffington Post,  and Bring the Noise and is moving on to a full-time post in graduate recruitment. Annie Dahne (second row, left photo, right) is moving to Hong Kong for a full-time position teaching English to primary students through the Chatteris Educational Foundation. Various students have been applying to MA programmes in Linguistics, Journalism and Marketing, and so far have been accepted to King's College London, Oxford and University College London. And those are just the ones we know about.

Our students' research has also been making waves. Three finalists had their dissertation research accepted for presentation at the Undergraduate Linguistics Association of Britain conference at York St John's University this past weekend. Katie Wadeson and Annie Dahne submitted poster presentations, while Rhys Sandow presented his work on onomasiological change in Cornwall and received the prize for the best presentation on Sunday. The next day, he was presenting his Junior Research Associate project at the British Council of Undergraduate Research conference in Winchester. He'd also had the opportunity to present that work at the Posters in Parliament event in February. Here he is at Westminster:

We're so proud of our students! Best of luck to all in finishing your dissertations and your other assessments.
