See what our students have to say about the Undergraduate Research Scholarship Scheme

What is URSS?

The URSS is a Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) initiative where second-year students take on a piece of original research in the form of a small scale PhD project. Successful applicants undertake this project from May until late-Septmber. The scheme is designed to develop several skills such as research and teamwork, along with their discipline specific knowledge.

The URSS allows participant the chance to explore their chosen discipline, whilst engaging in research which will allow their studies to come alive under the supervision of a University Lecturer. Applicants will be given a bursary during their participation and up to £200 to help conduct their research. Getting involved will allow the applicant to affect your chosen research area by having the possibility to write your own journal article and interact with leading professionals.
