The Education category has been in The Undergraduate Awards since its first year.
Students of all Education Theory and Practice disciplines, including Early Childhood Education, Adult Education, Philosophy of Education, History of Education and more are eligible to submit to the category.
Entries for this category must be within the 5,000-word limit and have received a 2.1/A grade.
The 2016 Global Winner of the Education category is Angelica Ng from Nanyang Technological University with her paper titled “Comparing Cyberbullying Perpetuation on Social Media Between Primary and Secondary School Students“. The judges commended the paper as “extremely well researched and well written”, saying:
The work was impressively organised, the literature review was both extensive and inclusive of recent studies in the field and the method of investigation was appropriate. The paper explored a major problem in schools – cyberbullying on social media – and reminded us of some strategies that, if implenmented, could negatively impact the continued perpetuation of cyberbullying.
Don’t forget, the deadline for submission this year is June 13th, and we look forward to reading new research in the fields of education from undergraduate students around the world.
