Exploring Research Beyond Academia: Making New Connections
This is the second year of the Interdisciplinary Arts Research Project (IARP) which gives students from different departments at the Faculty of Arts a unique opportunity to work together.
Students participating in IARP have a chance to develop transferable skills such as teamwork, resilience, digital literacy, interdisciplinarity, public engagement, research ethics and most importantly applying research into practical outcomes which are central to IARP.
Student feedback shows that the students have benefited from IARP in varied ways. It has supported applications for future study, projects, and jobs, enabled them to develop new skills or build on existing extra-curricular achievements and pushed them to take on responsibilities outside their normal comfort zone.
