Make the most of your research

Are you interested in going beyond what you're being taught in your workshops, seminars, and lectures? Carrying out research can lead you to look at and even answer questions that potentially no one else has addressed before you. Not only can research help you to become more engaged with your subject, it can also help you to develop professionally, adding self-education, patience, and organisational and people skills to your capabilities.

Applications for the British Conference of Undergraduate Research and Warwick's Undergraduate Research Support Scheme are now open. These are your opportunities to share your research, engage with other students' work and discuss new ideas.
