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 an opportunity to develop new knowledge and skills and to focus in-depth on an area of personal research interest. Students work directly with academic staff and have the opportunity to become more familiar with established research projects. To date, more than 300 students have benefited from the scheme, producing over 200 projects.

The titles of projects funded over the last two years include:

Applications are currently closed, but opportunities to apply to be a URSS researcher will open again in November.
