The ‘Cardiff Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme’ (CUROP) provides bursaries for summer placements for undergraduate students working with supervision on staff-defined research projects.
CUROP offers a stipend to support a student on a placement of up to eight weeks duration in the University's research environment. It is now one of the largest undergraduate research schemes in the UK, funding over 140 placements in 2013.
In recent years eight JOMEC BA research assistants have worked with staff in the School for two months each to initiate new projects. These projects were:
