Program dates: 12 weeks from May until August
The National University of Singapore is one of the top comprehensive research-intensive universities in the world and is consistently ranked the top university in Asia.
The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program in Science (UROPS) is a great way for undergraduate students to foster mentoring relationships with faculty and research staff and engage actively in research, discussions, and other creative activities. Through complementing conventional classroom learning and following the typical phases of doing research, students are able to enhance their knowledge in the latest development of science and technology, acquire special communication and presentation skills, think creatively, and interact and forge closer ties with the established scientists and members of their groups.
Students will conduct supervised research on a chosen project and give a presentation on their research . Give a presentation before they leave Singapore. By the first week of November following the summer programme, submit a paper and full report to the supervisors for grading when they are back at their home University. This will allow the students to concentrate fully on research during the 12 weeks and give them ample time to do extra literature review and write their reports when they are back at UBC.
