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 20th Annual UBC Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference to be held on April 6th and 7th, 2018 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 2017-2018 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.
