Collaborate with undergraduate researchers through UROP

UROP invites application for research projects

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

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) offers undergraduate students the chance to collaborate with academic staff on live research projects. The deadline for applying is 5.00 pm, Thursday 21 December.

The programme provides undergraduates with an opportunity to gain research experience through a paid six-week project during the summer vacation. For staff 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. 

Now in its thirteenth year, UROP has supported over 525 undergraduate research projects. 

Staff can apply to be Principal Investigators on UROP projects – to qualify, you must be a permanent member of staff, or on a fixed-term contract running past November 2018. 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.
