Key facts

The BUDRC is the first of its kind in the UK as a national undergraduate research conference

Initially starting as an idea in 2014, the British Undergraduate Dental Research Conference 2015 was the first of its kind and had resounding effects across the country. After the success of the first conference with over 200 attending students, we hosted The British Undergraduate Dental Research Conference in 2016, 17, 19, 20 and 2021. The conferences got bigger and better every year. In our last conference, we scaled new heights through the virtual conference despite Covid-19 restrictions. Speakers included world-renowned dentists who presented some cutting-edge research, as well as talks on career-building. Participants were also given personal suturing and composite kits to participate in the hands-on workshops from their own homes. Want to know more? Take a look around our website and make sure to follow us on social media for updates! We are looking forward to host our 7th conference in-next year for all the enthusiastic undergraduates from all over the country.
