Could your research benefit from undergraduate collaboration?

ndergraduate Research Opportunities Programme

UROP projects are showcased over the summer.

Researchers - could your work benefit from collaboration with undergraduate students?

The (UROP) offers undergraduate students the chance to gain hands-on research experience on projects covering all disciplines across the University.

Applications are now being accepted for collaborative research projects between academic departments and undergraduate students. 

The programme provides undergraduates with an opportunity to gain research experience through a paid six-week project during the summer vacation. For researchers, it is equally rewarding - collaborating with undergraduates can produce a fresh perspective on research and can help develop students into promising candidates for postgraduate research.

The deadline for applications is 17:00, 20 December 2019.

As a researcher, you can apply to be a Principal Investigator on UROP projects - to qualify, you must be a permanent member of staff, or on a fixed-term contract running past November 2020. Post-Doctoral Research Assistants can apply to be Principal Investigators if their supervisor is listed as a Co-Investigator, and PhD students may co-supervise projects only.
