Eight GSD students presented their research at BCUR 2019

Eight final year GSD students presented their research on 15th-16th April at the British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR) 2019, held at the Treforest Campus of the University of South Wales.

The conference promotes undergraduate research in all disciplines and, with 400+ delegates this year, it was an incredible event for our students to disseminate their work, display their research excellence and get to meet students and staff across the whole country. The event included also a conference dinner on 15th April opened by the First Minister of Wales.
