Presenting at MURC

Present at MURC

We have officially closed the application to present at MURC 2017. For any inquiries, please email undergraduate.research@ubc.ca.

Are you an undergraduate student that is interested in the world of research? Do you have a project you're passionate about and want to share? The Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference is a great place to start.

Every year, this conference gives undergraduate students the opportunity to showcase their research projects as well as the chance to listen to keynote speakers share their exceptional research experiences. If you have a Faculty-supervised research project you are currently undergoing and want to share with other researches, MURC is the place to do it. 
 

How to apply

We have officially closed the application to present at MURC 2017. For any inquiries, please email undergraduate.research@ubc.ca.

Students have the option to present either via a 10-minute oral presentation or a poster presentation. The top presenters from each year’s Conference will be considered for participation in the U21 Undergraduate Research Conference. UBC will cover the program registration fee, accommodation and travel expenses.

  • Talk to your research supervisor and get permission. As the nature of some research may be sensitive, this step is crucial and applications will not be accepted without supervisor approval.

  • Attend a "How to Write Research Abstracts and Proposals" workshop in January (exact date to be announced). Presented by UBC faculty, attendance at this workshop will strengthen your presentation proposal and abstract. At this workshop, specifics will be provided on the best practices and methods to write a professional and effective proposal. Submit your online registration by the deadline (announced in fall 2016). In addition to your own info, you will also be required to supply your research supervisor's information (name, department, email) on the application. If you have a co-presenter, you do not have to submit two applications: there is a field on the application form for co-presenter information.

  • Submit your online registration by January 31st. In addition to your own info, you will also be required to supply your research supervisor's information (name, department, email) on the application. If you have a co-presenter, you do not have to submit two applications: there is a field on the application form for co-presenter information.

  • Review of registrant applications: After the deadline, your application will be reviewed and your research supervisor will be contacted. Continue to work on your research presentation while your abstract is reviewed. You will be contacted by MURC in late February with next steps. Please ensure all registration steps are completed for consideration. All students will be provided with feedback on their research proposal.

Prepare your proposal

Review these proposal guidelines before you get started. You can also prepare by attending a proposal workshop.

Workshop: Preparing for your Oral and Poster Presentations

In preparation for your oral and poster presentations, we are going to offer workshop sessions that will allow you to learn more about presenting your research in a multidisciplinary format and to get feedback on your preliminary work. We will be informing the presenters (the main applicant if presenting as a group) about the details of these workshops via email.
