Biological Sciences: How to prepare and present an academic poster (for undergraduates)


Designing your first academic poster can be a bit overwhelming with lots of choices to be made: how much information do you include? How do you get your key message across? How do you make it look good?

Join us for our introductory session which will explore these things and more. We'll help you work out what your key message is, give you some advice on what to include (and what to cut out), how to make everything look visually appealing as well as accessible for a diverse range of audiences. We'll even give you some tips on how to present your poster to others.
