Undergraduate Research Student Poster Showcase & Lunch

Macquarie Undergraduate students present their amazing research in poster form! MURI and the Learning Innovation Hub invite you to join us for lunch, a chance to browse the posters, and meet other like-minded students and staff interested in the expanding possibilities of Undergraduate Research.

And…stick around after lunch to attend the 3 Minute Thesis Competition finals from 1.30pm-3.30pm!

These free events are open to all members of the Macquarie University community, students and staff.

Undergraduate Research: Staff and Student Collaborations

Collaborations on research at the undergraduate level are expanding across Macquarie as part of PACE, capstone units, MURI, BPhil unit, and in other new ways too. This informal showcase session brings together staff and students to share their experiences in a range of activities happening in Undergraduate Research across Macquarie University.

Please register below to attend – and also email learninginnovation@mq.edu.au if you are interested in presenting (student involvement encouraged!).

Note that this session is part of a wider program of interesting events on 19 September. It will be immediately followed by lunch and an Undergraduate Research Student Poster Showcase in Macquarie Theatre at 12.15pm (register separately here), leading in to the 3 Minute Thesis Competition Finals beginning at 1.30pm.
