Bournemouth University’s annual undergraduate research conference – Showcasing Undergraduate Research Excellence (SURE) – returns for a third year in March 2018
As well as giving students a supportive platform to showcase the quality of work they do, it gives others at BU an insight into the excellent research undertaken by our undergraduates. Not only is it a unique opportunity to further develop skills, prizes will also be available which include a fee waiver for a Master’s course at BU for the best overall contributor.
All undergraduate students at BU are eligible to apply, as are recent graduates. Examples of research could be anything from preparing for a dissertation or an essay to work carried out during a placement year to volunteering or work with academic societies. The key criteria is to be able to evidence critical thinking through the work.
The submission deadline for abstracts is 21 December. Please do encourage your students to apply.
You can download two lecture slides showing the benefits of taking part in SURE here..

Abstracts will be accepted for oral or poster presentations. If a student would like to present your research through another medium – a film, art exhibition or performance – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org initially.
