The Student Research Festival is an annual event organized by the faculty and students at the Institute of English Cultures and Literatures since 2013. The main aim of the Festival is to grant students the opportunity to share their academic interests and provide a platform enabling dialogue between those interested in the exchange of thoughts and research perspectives.

Ever since its inception, the Festival has become a space of stimulating debate and academic discussion for both those who consider their future in the academia and those who wish to share their projects which combine their passions with their scholarly interests.
