ACUR organises a range of events for students and for those responsible for undergraduate research provision in universities and colleges of higher education.


The ACUR Conference is an annual event where undergraduate students present their research. It is hosted by a higher education institution in Australasia. Each year the conference is organised by a team of staff and students in a different university.  You can read more about this and previous years’ conferences on this site.
