The 2023 edition of the AUC Capstone Forum will take place on Thursday 29 June in the Common Room. A selection of third-year students will display their capstone research for the AUC community. Over the course of three rounds, students, staff, and other invited guests will have a chance to hear brief presentations (approximately 2 minutes) from students and ask questions about their research in an open forum afterwards. This event will continue to use the new format implemented last year which is designed to include a larger number of students and research for visitors to engage with.

Presenting student research

The Capstone Forum (formerly known as the Capstone Seminar) is an annual event during which third-year AUC students showcase their capstone projects (Bachelor's theses). The capstone project is the culmination of students' time at AUC where they are encouraged to conduct independent research within their chosen area of specialisation. 

Those students who have theses that have scored highly are invited to present their work. These students will pitch their work at the start of each round and then they can discuss their topic, methods, analyses and conclusions in-depth at their market stand. Visitors are encouraged to join at the start of a round to hear which topics will be up for discussion and engagement, followed by time to visit stands from individual students to hear more about their work and questions raised by the pitch at the start.


The detailed programme, including which students will participate and their research topics, will be announced one week prior to the event.
