Undergrad­uate Research Scholarship Scheme

Your Research Project

Our Undergraduate Research Scholarship Scheme (URSS) gives all second-year students the chance to take part in a funded and supported research project. It is their opportunity to develop new knowledge and skills and to focus in-depth on an area of personal research interest. They also work more directly with academic staff and have the opportunity to become more familiar with established research projects. To date over 300 students have benefited from the scheme, producing over 200 projects. This year, up to 50 projects will be funded.
