Want to learn more about the human mind? Looking for ways to get involved in psychology and neuroscience research? Curious about how academic conferences are run? Then PURC is the perfect opportunity for you!

As a long-standing tradition of The University of British Columbia’s Psychology undergraduate community, the Psychology Students’ Association of UBC and the Department of Psychology are proud to announce the 19th Annual UBC Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference to be held on March 31st (Fri) and April 1st (Sat) at UBC’s Earth Sciences Building (ESB).

Our mission is to provide a professional environment for undergraduate researchers to showcase their work, gain experience in presenting at conferences, and contribute to the scientific community. We strongly encourage all undergraduate researchers who have spearheaded any form of psychology research during the 2016-2017 academic year to apply to present at this conference, as it not only is an invaluable opportunity for the presenter, but the contribution of presenters is also crucial in making this event a truly enriching experience.

The event will include a special keynote speaker, showcase of undergraduate students’ research, professors, UBC community, and refreshments to keep the energy going. We hope to see you there!
