The Graduate School are excited to present a brand new science communication competition - 4Cs Science Communication Competition or 4Cs SciComm Competition - for 2019!

The aim of the 4Cs competition is to provide postgraduate students from all disciplines across the College with the chance to develop their writing, as well as presentation and communication skills. The event has been designed to ensure that all those entering are supported and are given the opportunity to develop in their endeavour to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. The competition allows for Creativity, Content, Clarity and Charisma (the 4 ‘C’s’), in communicating science and research. Judges will look for and mark on these qualities.

In a change to previous years, a written element is being introduced alongside the presentation skills event. Both elements are open to ALL postgraduate students from across the College and students will be able to enter one, but not both parts of the competition.

The Competition took place on Wednesday 15 May 2019. Many thanks to all our competitors, and congratulations to the winners, as detailed below:
