BESA Conference Bursaries

We’ve been hearing from our members that with all the uncertainty in HE right now this has been a particularly tough year for securing funding. In light of this, BESA are pleased to announce that they will be offering a number of bursaries available to members who wish to present at the annual conference this year at UWTSD on the 27th and 28th June. Applications are welcome from students as well as any and all BESA members who have been unable to secure funding from their home institutions or elsewhere to attend the conference. Bursaries will cover the costs associated with attendance at both days of the conference plus the conference banquet as well as BESA membership fees for the forthcoming year. All applications are judged on the individual merit of the abstract submission by members of the BESA Executive and further information on the conference and our conference theme can be found on our website

To give people the time needed to take advantage of this special offer we will be extending the abstract submission deadline for the 2019 conference until the 31st May. Please submit your abstract via our website and any queries please email the conference coordinator Caroline Lewis at
