Bournemouth University’s annual Showcasing Undergraduate Research Excellence (SURE) Conference – returns for a sixth year on Wednesday 17 March 2021.
SURE is BU’s annual conference giving undergraduate and recent graduates the opportunity to showcase their excellent research completed as part of a dissertation, unit assignment or placement.
This year the conference will take place virtually on Wednesday 17 March between 1pm and 5.30pm and registration is now open for all to attend!
As well as giving students a supportive platform to showcase their work, the conference gives others at BU and externally an insight into the fantastic research undertaken by our undergraduates.
