BA Education Student Shortlisted for UKLA Dissertation Prize

Elizabeth Jennings, who graduated with a BA Education in 2021, has been shortlisted for the United Kingdom Literacy Association's (UKLA) Student Research Prize for her undergraduate dissertation: "A bit like sex education." Media literacy education and primary school children: mothers' understanding, attitudes and expectations.

Elizabeth’s dissertation is a timely exploration of a significant issue, linking debates in media education with wider social contexts, including parents’ experiences of the pandemic. We are thrilled that she has received this national recognition for her work. 

The UKLA Student Research Prize is awarded annually for an outstanding student dissertation at undergraduate, postgraduate or higher degree level undertaken at a UK institution. The winner will be announced in March 2022.

Congratulations Elizabeth.
