King's Experience Awards

King's Experience Research Award

The King’s Experience Research Award introduces students to the practice of research. The award aims to develop students’ generic and transferable skills in relation to teamwork and their communication skills, along with encouraging students to reflect on their learning experiences through their research.There are two routes into the Research Award: 

First route 

Students who have completed a King’s Undergraduate Research Fellowship (KURF) will submit an assessment for the Research Award. All students undertaking a Research Fellowship are enrolled on the Research Award, in order to structure and manage their academic output from the fellowship.

Second Route

Are you doing research outside of your degree programme? Some students at King’s organise their own independent research or are collaborating with academics at King’s. These students may have an interest in pursuing an academic career or have a passion for their subject area and want to further their knowledge. This Research Award provides you with a way to formally recognise your research.
