University Centre South Devon Research Showcase 2019

UCSD are proud to announce that our sixth annual research showcase is taking place between 7th-10th May 2019. The showcase is designed to celebrate the scholarly success of Foundation Degree and BA/BSc students. As a key value of Higher Education, many of our degree programmes offer students the opportunity to undertake first-hand research activity, so it is right that we provide a platform for their discoveries to be shared.

More than 60 students will be presenting their research, alongside industry experts. This is a fantastic opportunity to support students with their presentations, along with developing knowledge on key topic areas, as well as gaining an insight into supporting future research.
