Why I applied to the URSS?
I chose the URSS because I found it to be an amazing opportunity to research something that I am interested in.
My Project and why I chose to pursue it.
My topic is to do with Online Students Perceptions of Different Content Delivery Methods, such as PowerPoint, Prezi and the discussion boards.
What I gained from taking part of the project?
I gained many skills such as transcribing, data collecting and working with a research team. The skill of creating a conference poster is a fantastic thing to have as I will need to create a similar one for my Masters of PhD programme.
Do you have any advice for those who are thinking of joining?
It takes a lot of time management skills; however the URSS will look great on your CV for future post graduate studies.
