Posters in Parliament

Final year undergraduates and the class of 2016 are invited to submit a poster showcasing their undergraduate research, for an exhibition in the UCL Cloisters on 2 and 3 March.

Of the posters selected for the exhibition, a winner and runner up will be selected to present their work to legislators and policy makers at Westminster, as part of a national event called Posters in Parliament.

The initiative highlights the breadth and quality of research by UCL undergraduates, in line with the university's 20-year strategy, UCL 2034, which aims to make sure that all UCL students are able to learn through participating in research and enquiry at every level of study.

The selection and judging process is as follows (out of 20 points):

  • The quality and rigour of the research (out of 15 points)
  • The quality of the presentation (out of 5 points)


Posters must be orientated in portrait layout and be A0 in size (841mm x 1189mm). Selected posters will then need to be printed, at students' expense (however departments may be able to help, and should be approached in the first instance).

The deadline for PDF submissions is 22 February 2017 (12 noon), with successful students notified by 24 February 2017.

All submissions will have the chance to go on to represent UCL at the national event, Posters in Parliament to be held on the afternoon of 14 March 2017. A selection process for Posters in the UCL Cloisters will be in place, due to space limitations.

All exhibited posters will then be further scrutinised by the judging panel. A winner and runner up will each receive an award and then go on to Posters in Parliament.
