The two-day-long Asian Undergraduate Research Symposium (AURS) gives participants the opportunity to join other engaged undergraduate students from across the globe in an international and interdisciplinary course that aims to enhance their oral communication skills through a series of challenging and exciting online seminars and activities. Students have the opportunity to present their research projects to a group of keen and like-minded peers, academics, and professionals. Students learn from their feedback and advice and in turn, develop their presentation skills, broaden their professional network, and forge new friendships.
