Undergraduate Research Conference

A conference to showcase undergraduate research to an international audience and brush up on your presentation skills.

The first U21 Undergraduate Research Conference took place in 2005 and has been growing in popularity ever since.

It aims to attract students from a diverse range of discipline and typically includes a range of seminars and student presentations interspersed with social activities and tours to promote networking and stimulate discussion.  

The U21 URC is only open to undergraduate students from U21 member institutions (http://www.universitas21.com/member )

The URC also offers academic staff the opportunity to engage with U21 colleagues, discuss topical issues and develop professional networks.
