SURE 2018

Showcasing Undergraduate Research Excellence 2018

About the conference

Bournemouth University’s (BU) annual undergraduate research conference – Showcasing Undergraduate Research Excellence (SURE) – returns for a third year in 2018.  As well as giving students a supportive platform to showcase their work, it gives others at BU an insight into the excellent research undertaken by our undergraduates.

All undergraduate students at BU are eligible to apply, as are recent graduates.  Examples of research could be anything from preparing for your dissertation or an essay to work carried out during your placement year to volunteering or work with academic societies.  The key criteria is to be able to evidence your own critical thinking through your work.
