Posters in Parliament: could your undergraduate research take centre stage?

15 November 2017

Imagine presenting your research at the Houses of Parliament, alongside students from across the UK.

Posters in cloisters

Undergraduate students are now being invited to submit their research posters for display in a large exhibition, UCL Posters in Cloisters, at the end of January.  The submission window runs from 17 November 2017 to 19 January 2018.

A shortlisting exercise will take place in the Cloisters, where two outstanding posters will be selected from the submissions by a UCL panel for inclusion in the Posters in Parliament exhibition at Westminster and their authors will present their posters to visitors to the national exhibition, Posters in Parliament.

The research that you present can be work you have carried out as part of your undergraduate programme or outside it, for example as a Laidlaw scholar or as a private project. You must be either a current UCL undergraduates or have graduated in the last 12 months.

Posters in Parliament is staged by the British Conference of Undergraduate Research and designed to show the growing emphasis on undergraduate research at UK universities. A key objective of our institutional strategy, UCL 2034, is to give all students at every level the opportunity to carry out research.

Visit the UCL Posters in Parliament webpage to find out how to create a research poster and how to submit to Posters in Cloisters. You will also find templates and examples of previous research posters submitted by UCL students.
