UWE Bristol Student Conference 2018 – registration now open

The 2018 UWE Bristol Student Conference will celebrate research, enquiry, and evidence-based practice from undergraduate and postgraduate taught students.

It takes place on Monday 26 March 2018 at the Exhibition and Conference Centre (ECC) on Frenchay Campus. The Student Conference is your opportunity to hear from students across all years of study as they share their research. 

“Your course teaches you how to achieve and present academic knowledge – but only a few people ever see your work. This conference allows research and ideas to be shared.”

Student Conference 2017 participant

This free event is open to everyone (students, UWE Bristol staff, family and employers) and offers opportunities for networking and learning. Students will be able to learn about the nature of research and undertaking a dissertation, while employers may find their next placement student.

We’re excited about building on the success of the inaugural 2017 event, organised jointly by staff and students, which had 40 presentations and 36 posters communicated to 300 delegates.


Registration is now open the draft conference programme will be available shortly.
