Student research conference

  • The Get Published! Student Research Conference is an exciting opportunity for students to present their research to the Brookes community on campus.

    The Get Published! Student Research Poster Conference 2018 at Oxford Brookes University took place on Friday 13 April 2018 (week 9 of Semester 2). 

    100% of participants would recommend the event to other students.

    Through poster presentations, undergraduate and postgraduate taught students discussed the hard work they had carried out in their research with fellow students, academics, staff, the public and employers. 

    The university-wide conference has run for the past three years and has been a hugely successful event, with over 400 attendees at the inaugural event in 2016. 

    A number of students who presented their research at the conference also presented at the prestigious Posters in Parliament event for MPs and/or at the British Conference for Undergraduate Research.

    All of the posters displayed at the conference, including the winners of the undergraduate and postgraduate awards, can be viewed on RADAR, an archive of original research publications authored by staff and students of Oxford Brookes University.

    93% of participants rated the conference as excellent

    Dr. Andrea Macrae, Get Published! Project Lead, explains: "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."
