SureConference-800Proud of your research? Share your abstract to be part of BU’s SURE Conference 2015.

Research is a central part of academic life and each student’s undergraduate study, and the skills you develop by conducting research are relevant to almost all careers.

On 4 March 2015 BU is hosting its first SURE Conference to celebrate the outstanding research you’re already involved with, and demonstrate how research has enhanced your learning experience.

The call for submissions is now open, and BU undergraduates (including recent graduates) from all schools and courses are eligible to apply. Examples of research could be anything from preparing for your dissertation or an essay, to work carried out during your placement year, volunteering or work with academic societies. The main condition is that you demonstrate evidence of your critical thinking.

As well as developing new skills, getting involved with the SURE Conference is a good opportunity to enhance your CV through a conference presentation, publication of abstract or even being the winner of awards and prizes.

Get involved: register and submit your abstract (300 words max) on the SureBU website by Tuesday 20 January.
