University Research Scholarships & Expeditions Scheme.

The Faculty Learning and Teaching team are delighted to be supporting the University Research Scholarships and Expeditions scheme, a University fund which enables undergraduate students to conduct their own research. Students can apply for 6-8 weeks of funding (at £200 a week) for a project of their own choosing over the summer vacation. This is a fantastic opportunity for Undergraduate students in the middle year(s) of their degree (in year 2 of a 3 year programme; in years 2 or 3 of a 4 year programme; etc.)

The Faculty Learning and Teaching team would like to encourage applications from HaSS students, but recognise that humanities and social sciences students sometimes find it difficult to recognise what might constitute “research” in their subject area. Therefore we are holding a showcase event where HaSS students can see examples of past research, ask past applicants questions, and find out more about the scheme. This event is taking place:

Wednesday 28th November, 2pm-4pm

Barbara Strang Teaching Centre

(formerly Bedson Building)


About the event: Please see attached for more information, or visit this webpage to find some FAQs and examples of past projects in HaSS.

More about the scheme: Please visit the webpage for more information about the scheme. Application forms and deadlines can also be found here.
