This conference was part of the Research Practice Course (RPC) in which students engage with research methods, theories and philosophies alongside their individual PhD research. This conference was organised by the third year students, papers were given by the second year students, and posters were presented by the first year students. This conference also included a paper from guest speaker Julius Ayodeji and was open for attendees from across the University. Publishing articles and presenting conference papers is an important component of any PhD programme. In view of this, the aim of this conference was to provide students with the opportunity to present a piece of useful material linked to their research in front of an audience within the friendly framework of the University, before embarking on the wider world of national and international conferences and publishing. This conference encouraged new multi-disciplinary papers about the originality, motivations, inspirations and contributions of students research.
