Many students who have undertaken UROP have fed back to the scheme about their experiences.

Whether you are a current or prospective undergraduate of Imperial College or a student from another UK university we hope you find these stories both informative and inspiring!

Firstly: you can listen to Rea on the Imperial College Youtube channel talk about her UROP experience in the summer of 2021.

Hopefully Rea's thoughtful insight into her experiences will have whetted your appetite to hear more feedback from UROP participants. You will find below a number of perspectives (indicating the subject area of the UROP). You are encouraged to read those in disciplines other than your own since perspectives focus on the UROP process (finding, securing, undertaking and reflection) rather than the technical detail of the research.  You can learn much which is insightful from those who have taken part.

Please note that during the summer of 2020 most UROPs were undertaken on a remote basis due to the pandemic, while in the summer of 2021 the UROP experience was a more mixed mode operation (some wholly campus-based; some wholly remote and many a bit of both).

Whether UROP in the summer of 2022 will require similar flexibility on the part of staff and students only time will tell.
