The British Undergraduate Philosophy Society (BUPS), founded in 2005, is the national society for all undergraduate philosophy students (single or dual honours) who study philosophy in the United Kingdom. Since its founding, BUPS has grown into an active organisation which plays a major role in the undergraduate philosophy scene in the UK.
The society organises two conferences a year at which undergraduate student speakers from across the UK, and well-known professional academic philosophers from around the world, present papers. BUPS conferences have been held across the country, some examples of which include the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, Southampton, Nottingham, Warwick, and Leeds.
BUPS also publishes a national undergraduate philosophy journal: the British Journal of Undergraduate Philosophy (BJUP). The BJUPis the oldest, and arguably the most prestigious, undergraduate philosophy journal in the UK. The BJUPreceives submissions from undergraduate students around the world, and the authors of papers that are accepted for publication in the next edition of the BJUP are invited to present at a BUPS conference.
