Undergraduate Research Opportunities Scheme

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Scheme (UROS) is an initiative designed to encourage undergraduates to actively engage in research taking place at the University of Lincoln. This scheme embodies the principle of ‘Student as Producer’, which underpins the Lincoln approach to teaching and learning. 

UROS is a competitive bursary scheme devised to encourage undergraduate students to gain hands-on research experience on projects covering all disciplines across the University.  Applications are invited from any undergraduate student wanting to pursue a project in partnership with either an academic school or a professional service department. Submissions should be jointly made by the student researcher and an academic supervisor, and can propose a stand-alone project, or form a subsidiary part of larger scale research work.

Successful projects are awarded a student bursary of up to £1000, enabling students to work collaboratively on their research during term-time and/or over the summer break. Students participating in the scheme will disseminate their projects and research findings in a variety of ways, including a published report and through a poster presentation at the annual UROS Exhibition Showcase. This gives students the opportunity to gain confidence in exhibiting their work to different audiences, and acquire experience in presenting in multiples formats.

UROS is a unique opportunity for students and academics to collaborate and engage with new and exciting research. This project also enhances CVs and career prospects by developing research skills, highlighting initiative, enthusiasm, the planning and development of unique ideas, collaboration, and many other transferable skills.
