Fellowships for Students
The 2018 KURF scheme is now closed for all student applications.
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.
Applications for the King's Undergraduate Research Fellowships 2018 have now closed. Students/academics have now started their projects.
For reference, the full list of projects running this year can be found in the 2018 prospectus.
What can students do?
Students can be involved in research in a variety of ways:

Please see the 2018 prospectus for a full list of opportunities. Undergraduate Research Fellowships are offered in all of the Faculties at King's.
The scheme has grown and we are pleased to offer over 160 fellowship this year. Each student received a bursary.
King's Experience Research Award
After the 2018 Research Fellowships are completed, participating students will submit an assessment for the King’s Experience Research Award, enabling formal recognition of the achievement. The most recent Research Awards Ceremony was held in December 2017, with prizes awarded to the most successful projects.
