PPE Conference

About Us.

UK Undergraduate PPE Conference is a global non-profit undergraduate conference. It welcomes submissions of student research from all areas of the humanities and social sciences—with a specific focus on issues pertaining to politics, economics, and philosophy. 

The overarching aim of this conference is to give students a platform where they are able to showcase their original research in different fields of the humanities and social sciences, to foster dialogue and critical thinking, and thereby promote research in humanities and social science more generally. By inviting established researchers in different fields as keynote speakers, we look to provide an opportunity for students to learn about the value and inner workings of academia, and grow their academic network.


You may get a chance to win one of three prizes.

This conference has no registration fee. Meanwhile, we will have rewards for three outstanding researchers.

This award is given to the student whose paper submission demonstrates the highest level of academic rigor and originality. Our focus is here not only on the content of the research but also the quality of writing.

This award is given to the student whose conference presentation. Beyond the content of the student’s research, we are here also looking for rhetorical excellence.

This award is given to the student whose overall work demonstrates exceptional academic potential—as a writer, presenter, and a thinker.
