Deadline extended – chance to attend the UK’s biggest undergraduate conference

The deadline for applications to attend the UK’s biggest undergraduate conference has been extended.

The University is funding 20 students to attend The British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR) in Cardiff on 15-16 April 2019.

Students now have until Monday 3 December to apply for a place – a great opportunity to meet students from other universities and share your work.

What is BCUR?

The British Conference of Undergraduate Research promotes undergraduate research in all disciplines. BCUR 2019 will be held at the Treforest Campus of the University of South Wales on 15-16 April 2019.

Thanks to a Learning and Teaching Innovation Grant, the University of Portsmouth will be fully funding 20 students, four from each faculty, to participate in BCUR 2019. Any undergraduate at any level can apply for funding.

If you are interested you can apply by completing this Google form.

You might be working on a dissertation, or you may have devised your own topic for an assessment. You might have worked with an external company, or worked with a researcher over the summer to help them with their research project.

All research is welcome at this conference, in any discipline taught in Higher Education. If you are unsure whether your work fits, get in touch, or talk to your tutor to find out how to get involved. Performances, installations or interventions from students in the creative industries are also very welcome.

Funding details

There is a two stage process:

  • First: you apply for funding internally to the University of Portsmouth
  • Second: if you are successful and your funding is agreed, we will help you submit your application to the BCUR conference organisers.
