Highest number of Economics students accepted at BCUR

We are delighted to announce that a record number of 18 Economics undergraduate students have been accepted to present their papers at the British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR 20) which will be hosted this year at the University of Leeds, 6-7 April 2020.

The BCUR is the largest annual event for undergraduates in the UK, offering an excellent opportunity for students to present their research at an academic conference which is supportive and interdisciplinary.

Since 2010, when BCUR was established, the presence of Economics students at the Conference has grown over the years, culminating this year in a record number of students accepted onto the conference programme. The department wishes to congratulate all Warwick Economics participants and is happy to provide financial support to enable attendance at the conference.

Professor Gianna Boero, Module Leader for Research in Applied Economics (RAE), who advises our students on paper submission and participation at national and international conferences, has said:

We are delighted that so many of our students have had their papers accepted for presentation at the British Conference of Undergraduate Research 2020. This connects very well with our teaching pedagogy based on the concept of the Undergraduate as Researcher. The BCUR offers an excellent opportunity for students to develop their research communication and dissemination skills, as well as a chance to network with other student researchers and academics from different universities, which often creates great contacts for future research.”
