Undergraduate Poster Competition

The Undergraduate Poster Showcase is a chance to celebrate the research undertaken by students at the University. The showcase 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 showcase 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 showcase will be considered for either the "Best Penryn Poster" or "Best Streatham Poster" prize.

The showcase for academic year 2016/17 is now closed. Entries for the 2017/18 showcase will open shortly, with more details to be confirmed on this page about the deadline for entries and where to enter. The 2017/18 Showcase Exhibition will take place on 4-8th December 2017 in the Forum Street, Streatham Campus, and the Exchange Compass, Penryn Campus.
