• Student Research Conference

    The next Oxford Brookes University Get Published! Student Research Poster Conference takes place on Friday 12 April 2019 (week 11 of Semester 2). 

    Through poster presentations, undergraduate and postgraduate taught students showcase their research to fellow students, staff, the public and employers. 

    • 85% of surveyed presenters at the 2018 conference said it helped them to develop their creative abilities
    • 80% said that presenting at the conference enhanced their critical thinking
    • 95% of surveyed presenters at the 2018 conference rated it as good or excellent

    All of the posters presented at the conference are published on RADAR, an online collection of original research authored by staff and students of Oxford Brookes University. All presenters get a unique URL for their research posters to add to their CVs.

    Presenting a research poster at the conference is a great way for students to share the new knowledge and insights they’ve discovered at Oxford Brookes. It's an opportunity for students to communicate complex ideas in straightforward ways to staff, students, members of the general public, and potential employers, and a chance for everyone to come and learn about some of the exciting work our students do here.
