Undergraduate Research Opportunities Scheme

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Scheme (UROS) is designed to encourage undergraduates to become actively involved in the research work of the University. UROS embodies the principle of ‘Student as Producer’, which underpins the Lincoln approach to teaching, learning and student engagement. 

UROS is a competitive bursary scheme designed to encourage undergraduate students to gain hands-on research experience on projects covering all disciplines across the University.  Applications are invited from both academic schools and professional services departments for stand-alone projects, or form a subsidiary part of larger scale research work, that could be completed by an undergraduate student working under the supervision of a member of academic staff.

Successful projects are awarded a student bursary of up to £1000, enabling students to work collaboratively on their research during the summer break. Students taking part in the scheme are required to produce a blog report and a poster containing the research findings to present at the annual UROS Exhibition Showcase Event.
