To apply for a project, please contact the supervisor advertising it. The application process is informal, but it is a good idea to explain why you are interested in the project and why you feel you are qualified. A CV can help the supervisor get a picture of your relevant background.
UROP is available for students in any but the final year of their respective degree programme (i.e., first and second year for BSc; first, second, or third for MSci). However, it is possible that the final year project results from a previous UROP with the same supervisor.
Students applying for UROP are expected to have attained a GPA of 70 or higher for their most recently completed year of study. First year students that have not yet completed any exams are expected to have performed at an equivalent level in their coursework.
