Undergraduate Research Symposium 2021
The Undergraduate Research Symposium (URS) allows students to gain experience in an academic conference environment, to present their papers to a wider audience and to make their ideas public.
All undergraduate students at Utrecht’s Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance (LEG, or in Dutch: REBO) who have written a research paper are invited to apply. This way, the symposium does not only provide a platform for students from different disciplines to discuss their thrilling research topics, but also encourages interdisciplinary discourse. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the event will take place online on June 29th, 2021. Students will thus be asked to hand in short video-presentations of their papers. The five best papers will receive awards!
We welcome applications and papers from:
- Philosophy, Politics and Economics
- Other bachelor programmes
The URS offers bachelor students first-hand experience of what an academic conference really feels like. Its goal is to spark further interest in careers with research and to connect students and faculty members involved in all bachelor programmes at our faculty
