Undergraduate Research Showcase

The Undergraduate Research 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. We welcome entries from undergraduates across all years, and recent alumni, so long as you have graduate from an undergraduate course within the 12 months prior to December 2017.

Students are able to present their research as a poster or as an abstract for a short presentation. After judging by a panel consisting of students and staff, the two best posters will be nominated to present at the Houses of Parliament at a national event attended by numerous UK universities. The two best presentation abstracts will also be supported in presenting at the 2018 British Conference of Undergraduate Research, taking place at the University of Sheffield. 

All entries to the 2017 Showcase will be exhibited on 4-8th December 2017 in the Forum Street, Streatham Campus, and the Exchange Compass, Penryn Campus, with judging taking place halfway through the week. Each exhibition will be officially opened at a lunchtime reception on Monday 4th December.

Information for Entrants

The entry form for submitting your work will shortly be available, and a link to this form will be posted on this page. The deadline for entries will be 12noon on Friday 24th November. Before entering, we strongly advise that you familiarise yourself with the showcase criteria

We understand that many students do not generally have the opportunity to create and present a research poster as part of their course; we are currently developing online interactive resources which you can use to create the most effective poster or abstract for your work.
