Posters in Parliament

Posters in Parliament is an excellent annual opportunity to showcase the research of LSE undergraduates and to celebrate British undergraduate research in general.

Each participating UK university nominates two participants to exhibit their undergraduate research in the exhibition. Posters must exhibit work that has been conducted during an undergraduate programme, either from current students or recent graduates.

Along with the opportunity to present work in Westminster, the top three posters, as selected by a judging panel, receive a monetary award to be put towards furthering the research or researcher’s career. The judging panel take into account both the rigour of the research and the quality of the poster’s presentation.

Posters in Parliament did not take place in 2021 or 2022, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
