Undergraduate Research Grants

Annual grants by the Institution's Research Fund support research projects undertaken in the last or penultimate year of undergraduate study.

Undergraduate Research Grants help you add value to current projects and present you with an opportunity to make your work stand out.

Topics for study

Applications on our industry focussed research themes are encouraged, but you can cover other topics.

Applications

Applications should be made by academic project supervisors on behalf of students. Each supervisor may only make one application per year. If you’re a student interested in a grant, please consult your supervisor.

Applications should be made for a project to be carried out in the next academic year.

Applications will be assessed based on:

  • Likelihood of scope for further research

  • Extent of innovation

  • Impact on practice

  • Feasibility

Grants are not transferable to other supervisors or projects.

The £800 grant will be paid in two installments: £600 will be paid at beginning of project to the supervisor for project costs including equipment, consumables and software licenses.

£200 is paid to the student on submission of all deliverables.
