Undergraduate Research Showcase

The Undergraduate Research Showcase celebrates the research undertaken by students at the University. The showcase is open to students from all disciplines, and all submitted work is displayed in a public exhibition in January 2020, with separate events on our Streatham and Penryn campuses.

We welcome entries from undergraduates across all years, and recent alumni. A link to enter can be found in the top right hand side of this webpage or, if you are unable to use the form, please email your work in to us at

Students are able to present their research as a poster, an abstract for a short presentation, or both. A judging panel selects two winning posters to present at Posters in Parliament, and two abstracts to present their research in full at the 2020 British Conference of Undergraduate Research, taking place this year at the University of Leeds.

More information is available on these webpages, or you can contact the team:

In addition to sharing your research and your passion for that topic, the showcase is an opportunity to win a fully-funded place at either Posters in Parliament or the British Conference of Undergraduate Research and exhibit your research with students from across UK universities. Taking part in the Showcase at any level will help you to demonstrate and develop your skills in networking, communication, and presenting to peers.

Exhibiting your work is a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate experience in disseminating your contribution within an academic environment to the public and wider university community. If you are considering studying for a research degree, such as a PhD, this can really help your funding application stand out.

Participation in the Showcase can be counted towards your Exeter Award hours, in particular on the new Research Pathway, which can help you to develop your employability as a researcher even further.
