Many students who have undertaken UROP have written about their experiences.

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

You will find below a sample of their 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.

Our NEW perspectives below are from students who undertook a UROP on a remote basis.

Whether UROP in the summer of 2021 will require similar flexibility on the part of staff and students only time will tell.
