It’s showtime. And you’re the star.

Since launching in 2011, our yearly Student Thesis Conference (STC) has grown into one of the biggest platforms for sports students to showcase their research.

It’s open to all Sports, Health and Exercise Science (SHES) students, with our first years attending as delegates. Second year students are invited to make a poster presentation of their proposed study plan. While our third years deliver an oral presentation on the dissertation they’ve recently completed.

This unique, day-long event also puts you in the same room as successful Hull graduates, and some of the best-known employers in the industry.
