Fellowships for Students
King's Undergraduate Research Fellowships gives undergraduate students the unique opportunity to learn alongside our leading academics.
Previous Fellowship holders have published peer-reviewed academic journal articles and conducted major laboratory research, to give some examples.
An Undergraduate Research Fellowship project will give students the experience and exposure to help them in their next steps, whether it is in pursuing further study, or in demonstrating their leadership and drive to future employers.
The 2017 KURF scheme is now closed for applications. Students will receive an outcome to their application by the end of May.
