We are delighted to report that Elena Mylona, a third-year BA Sociology and Quantitative Methods student, recently had the opportunity to present her work at the annual British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR). Read more about her experience below:
The British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR) is an annual 2-day event which brings together students from all kinds of disciplines. Students present their work in the form of talks, posters or installations. BCUR is a great opportunity to learn about various topics, research methods, and approaches. Attending this conference was a truly unique experience. I had the chance to meet new people from various disciplines and universities, and hear about their research projects, while I was also able to present my own work. This is an amazing opportunity for undergraduate students, even if they do not wish to continue doing research after completing their studies. Definitely an unforgettable experience!
