WorldCUR- BCUR 2023

WorldCUR - BCUR 2023 at Warwick

"It was a transformative experience that I wouldn't have been able to gain anywhere else. I have a broader perspective on worldwide academia." Brooke Busbee, Middle Tennessee State University
I would recommend greatly as it exposed an undergraduate to many new things that can aid them to be clear about their career path.(Benford Kayuni, University of Malawi)
It certainly was something different and being able to show my work on an international stage was amazing. You don't get that chance very often.(Hauke Ukena,Carl von Ossietzky Universität)
I would recommend WorldCUR to another student because attending the conference gave me different opportunities I never heard of during my undergraduate study. It has increased my interest in taking research and understanding the impact of research studies, Halima Nabirye, Muni University
It was a phenomenal opportunity to connect with other research enthusiasts at the undergraduate level. I was very impressed by how well the conference was organised and how enjoyable networking actually is. It definitely confirmed my heart to pursue further studies and academia. Amanda Hor University of Sussex,
This experience has made me so confident in my research, public speaking skills, and has made me feel more connected with others. I think that WorldCUR is a great opportunity for those wanting to meet fellow undergraduate researchers and to expand their own experience and opportunities. Sophie Wingo, University of Kentucky

This joint celebration of undergraduate research was held as an in-person event at the University of Warwick between 4th - 6th April 2023. The joint conferences welcomed over 600 delegates to our campus in Coventry, UK.

This was the first occasion on which a national conference of undergraduate research had been brought together with the World Congress in a joint event.

We were excited to provide this opportunity to share and network between communities, and that students from the UK and around the world were able to showcase their research at a single event.

WorldCUR-BCUR 2023 shared a joint Keynote Speaker, social networking events and Closing Plenary, as well as joint poster presentation sessions, with separate streams of spoken presentations for each conference.
