 "I would strongly recommend UROP to anyone who is interested in a career in research. It provides invaluable experience in a welcoming and supportive environment. I am far more confident now that I am suited to a career in scientific research. It helped me expand my horizons and look at problems in a new way.

I would like to thank UROP for this fantastic experience." Freddie Steinmeyer, 2011

"UROP looks fantastic on your CV. Employers see that you have gone to the effort to do something worthwhile in your holidays. It shows that you are motivated, enthusiastic and able to use your initiative. I have been to several interviews and was asked about my UROP at every one - all the interviewers were impressed. Taking a UROP was one of the best choices I have made at uni. I would strongly recommend it to anyone." Daniel Wood, 2010

"My placement was in a department different from my studies so I gained an insight into a different area. I had a great deal of independence within the framework of this placement, which was important to me." Ambroise Baker, 2007.

"It was great to be given both the opportunity to explore my own ideas for the project, but have the support of my supervisor whenever I needed it – it was a really good way to learn." Ruth Botting, 2007.

"My supervisor gave me a good level of responsibility; he respected my views, he discussed ideas and brainstormed theories with me and he was enthusiastic and passionate about the work. I feel that I have learnt just as much from him as from the research material." Linda Anglin, 2007.
