Showcasing Undergraduate Research Excellence (SURE)

Showcasing Undergraduate Research Excellence Conference

SURE is BU’s annual conference giving undergraduate and recent graduates the opportunity to showcase their research completed as part of a dissertation, unit assignment or whilst on placement. As well as giving students a supportive platform to showcase their work, the conference gives others at BU and externally an insight into the variety of research undertaken by our undergraduates and makes an excellent addition to our student’s CVs for the future.

The 2022 conference was hosted alongside the BU Sustainability team, and students that showcased research related to sustainability and the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were considered for a prize during the event. As well as the sustainability prize, additional prizes were awarded to a representative from each faculty and a BU Master's fee waiver was awarded to the best entry in the conference.
