What Is UROP?
The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) offers undergraduate students the chance to gain hands-on research experience on projects covering all disciplines across the University.UROP applications usually open from the end of February to the start of April each year. They are advertised through reading.ac.uk/urop.
The scheme provides exciting opportunities for University of Reading students in the middle years of their degree (i.e. not first or final year students) to support real research projects alongside academic researchers at the university. Our research projects last six weeks over the summer break, or can be part-time over a longer period, and those students involved with the scheme will receive a bursary of £1,320.
*Please note, for payment reasons you will need to be in the UK to undertake a project, even if the project can be completed remotely.
