British Conference of Undergraduate Research


The British Conference of Undergraduate Research is the biggest conference in the UK dedicated to celebrating undergraduate research. Anyone who’s done a dissertation, a research project, an internship, or simply an interesting end-of-term essay, can give a talk or present a poster about their work. All subjects are represented—it’s a great opportunity for students to share their work with attendees from universities across Britain, and great fun too! Newcastle has been involved since 2015, and there’s University sponsorship for the best projects to be presented, paying for attendance, travel and accommodation. Find out more about the conference, Posters in Parliament and the Newcastle University competition on the BCUR events page.

In 2019, 18 students went to the University of South Wales to present their work. See some of their work on the poster presentations page, and contact us at if you’d be interested in participating next year!
