Encourage your students to apply for the 2015 Undergraduate Research Conference Support Scheme
Building on the University’s commitment to engaged enquiry, the Institute for Teaching and Learning (ITL) is proud to offer two currently enrolled University of Sydney undergraduate coursework students, the opportunity to present their ‘undergraduate research’ at this year’s Australian Conference of Undergraduate Research (ACUR), 29-30 September at The University of Western Australia in Perth. Alongside support for each student, the ITL will also fund the attendance of one staff member who is responsible for designing the curriculum that has led to the undergraduate student being engaged in research and enquiry.
The 2015 Australian Conference of Undergraduate Research (ACUR)
An undergraduate research conference is like any academic conference except that undergraduates give the majority of the presentations. These students report on research carried out within their units, in a research internship, a research-based degree program, or in voluntary work. The conference is a great opportunity to meet students from other universities and to share research. As a multi-disciplinary conference, students will have chances to network with other undergraduate researchers from similar disciplines, and also to learn about how other disciplines approach research problems.
While Honours, Masters by Coursework, and Masters by Research students are strongly encouraged to present their research at the ACUR conference, this support scheme is only for currently enrolled undergraduate coursework students at Sydney.
