Showcasing Undergraduate Research 2019

About the conference

Bournemouth University’s (BU) annual research conference – Showcasing Undergraduate Research Excellence (SURE) – returns for a fourth year in 2019. As well as giving students a supportive platform to showcase their work, it gives others at BU an insight into the excellent research undertaken by our undergraduates.

All undergraduate students at BU are eligible to apply, as are recent graduates. Examples of research could be anything from preparing for your dissertation or an essay, to work carried out during your placement year, to volunteering or work with academic societies. The key criterion is to be able to evidence your own critical thinking through your work.

If you’re an undergraduate or recent graduate and would like to take part, please submit an abstract by 20 January 2019 by completing the abstract submission form (docx 83kb). Those submitting posters must print them at their own expense. We ask for A1 portrait and recommend Copyplus.

For more information about this year’s conference and prize winners, see our research website.

The SURE conference is now recognised as a part of the Global Talent Programme.
