Registration now open

BERA has decided to not increase registration fees for another year. We understand that cost of living increases and inflation have an impact on the careers and lives of the educational research community and we have therefore decided that BERA will absorb any additional conference running costs for 2023.

Please also remember that there are bursaries you can apply for to assist with registration fees and/or travel. Apply here.
