Find out how to apply
The UROP process starts with proposals from members of staff in Autumn Term for six week projects that will present students with an insight into a range of research skills in an area that complements or extends their research interests.
Those projects selected for funding are then advertised here in the Spring Term, opening a competitive application process for students. The application process usually consists of submitting a CV and a cover letter before being invited to interview, if successful. Please check each opportunity for the application process. Support is provided by Careers throughout the application process and supervisors are encouraged to provide feedback to all applicants, whether successful or unsuccessful.
