Undergraduate Research Opportunity Programme

What UROP is about, and where it is offered

The intent of the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) is to formally involve undergraduate students in research activities under the supervision of faculty members in their respective fields of study. UROP aims to enhance undergraduate students’ knowledge of, and acquire the skills required for, the intellectual process of inquiry. Undergraduate students who are enrolled in UROP are awarded modular credits for their work on their research projects. UROP is offered in the Colleges, Faculties and Schools found in the table below. Details for module registration and assessment can be found in their respective UROP pages.

UROP students pursuing research projects with a Southeast Asia focus can apply for the Undergraduate Research Library Fellowship.
