Undergraduate Poster Competition
The Undergraduate Poster Competition is a chance to celebrate the research undertaken by students at the University. The competition is open to students from all disciplines, and sees all submitted work displayed in a public exhibition, with separate events on our Streatham and Penryn campuses.
A judging panel nominates two winning posters to share their research at the Houses of Parliament at a national event attended by numerous UK universities. While the competition is open to all students, to be considered for nomination to the Parliament event, posters must be on research done in the final year of undergraduate study. All other posters entered into the competition will be considered for either the "Best Penryn Poster" or "Best Streatham Poster" prize, each consisting of a £50 Amazon voucher.
The competition for academic year 2016/17 is now closed. Dates for the 2017/18 competition will be released towards the end of summer 2017; the criteria for entry and support available for entrants is available within the different sub-sections here.
