The British Conference of Undergraduate Research meets annually every spring in a different British university and promotes undergraduate research in all disciplines via papers, posters, workshops and performances.

About BCUR

The British Conference of Undergraduate Research promotes undergraduate research in all disciplines. The Conference meets annually every spring in a different British university. Undergraduates of all levels are invited to submit papers, posters, workshops and performances to the conference. Abstracts are peer-reviewed and those accepted will be invited to attend the conference. Conference fees are usually paid by the student’s own university. BCUR also accepts submissions from students outside of the UK. The call for papers is usually published in the autumn.

BCUR was founded in 2010 and held its first conference in 2011 at the University of Central Lancashire. The event doubled in size for the second conference, held in 2012 here at Warwick. The 2013 Plymouth conference was bigger still, and the conference has continued to attract an increasing number of attendees and presenters year on year.

BCUR 2020 will be held next spring at the University of Leeds. IATL will communicate the call for abstracts to University of Warwick undergraduates in autumn 2019.

Posters in Parliament

Posters in Parliament is the annual sister event of BCUR and brings together a remarkable collection of the best undergraduate research from across the country. In 2019, two Warwick students who are scheduled to present at BCUR in April were selected to present their posters. The event, hosted by the University of Sussex, was held on Thursday 7 March 2019 in Portcullis House, London. The Warwick students spoke to fellow undergraduate researchers and academics, as well as Government officials and MP's.
