What is UROP?

The Department of Computer Science offers undergraduate students an opportunity to become involved in cutting edge research through the Undergraduate Research Opportunity (UROP) programme. UROP projects are individual research projects conducted under the supervision of academics, often in collaboration with other members of their research groups. They allow undergraduate students to experience research first hand and provide training in relevant research skills including literature research, algorithm development, prototyping, and experimentation. Currently available UROPs are listed at https://urop.cs.rhul.ac.uk/projects.

UROP projects last 6 weeks (full-time) over the summer break. Participating students will receive a £1,500 bursary (due to the current situation and budgeting constraints, the payment model is TBD). Participating students will be enrolled in the CS2000P course and will have to submit a report at the end of their projects. Please see the UROP specification document for more details.

Participation in UROP will provide 40 RHUL passport points to recognise extracurricular engagement. To register your passport points after completing your project, please complete the UROP passport form.
