OU Research Showcase

7th-9th September 2018, Warwick University
Online booking has now closed, please contact for availability.

OUPS is proud to present an Open University Research Showcase,  presenting and celebrating some of the latest research from leading Open University academics.

Come and meet the academics behind the course material - leading researchers from the school of Psychology will be joining us for the weekend to present the latest research behind the writing. This is a fantastic opportunity to mix with psychologists, ask questions and find out all about the vibrant postgraduate community at the Open University.

** Attendees at the Research Showcase are also welcome to attend any sessions that are part of the ‘ Thinking of Postgrad?’ weekend running at the same time **


Confirmed speakers and their areas of research are as follows – titles of presentations and abstracts will be confirmed soon.

What's included ?

Costs are fully inclusive of all accommodation, meals, tuition, handouts and also include social events. Please note that all meals are still included in the non-residential option.

What to expect

The lectures are conducted in lecture theatres within the University campus, and you will be provided with a timetable of talks and lecture notes on arrival.

If you book the residential package then you will have a room in student halls complete with bedding, towels, a hairdryer, coffee making facilities and desk. Wifi is also included. Ensuite rooms include a bathroom with toilet and shower while standard rooms share toilet and shower facilities on the same floor. 

There are welcome drinks and also a psychology book stall, and these are both excellent places to meet other students. All students and staff wear name badges, so it is easy to find somebody to help if you have any questions. You can enjoy your meals with a group of students in the comfortable dining room. The food is fresh, healthy buffet style catering, and there is something to entice everyone. All meals are included in the price of the weekend.

Finally, whilst most students leave exhausted from the learning and socialising, they comment that it is such a worthwhile weekend, and we see many of them each year as they progress their studies!


The weekend takes place at Conference Park, University of Warwick. Accommodation is in single bedrooms on campus.

Warwick is an award winning conference venue with excellent facilities. Access to the sports facilities, including the swimming pool, are included in the price. The university's central location with excellent transport links makes it easily accessible from all over the UK and Europe. There is ample free car parking.
