Tell It Straight | Communications Competition

Tell It Straight challenges research students to communicate their research, and its potential impact, to a non-specialist audience in a concise, dynamic and innovative way. The ability to communicate research in a manner that is free from jargon is a crucial skill for research students.

The competition provides a forum for staff and students to hear about research taking place across the University, not just in a particular discipline.
