International Research Opportunities Programme (IROP)

The department of chemistry offers Year 3 MSci students the exciting chance to participate in the summer international research opportunities programme (IROP).

These research placement schemes present a unique opportunity to gain international research experience and to experience life in another country during the summer break.

Participants in the schemes can expect:

  • to spend a minimum of 8 weeks working in a safe yet challenging research environment in an international setting
  • to work with world-renowned researchers on cutting-edge projects
  • to receive pre-departure support and assistance with visas, accommodation and registration at the partner university

Placements take place during the summer break from the end of June to the end of August. Exact dates and application procedures for each partner scheme will be confirmed each year.

For more information about student experiences and previous partner universities please visit this college webpage.
