Summer Research 

About

During this six-week program, students at the university will engage in an immersive academic research project that aligns with the current research areas within the school. They will have the opportunity to tackle a pressing medical problem by conducting experiments and developing innovative solutions.

Throughout the program, students will assume responsibility for their research project by undertaking various tasks, including conducting a literature review before the program begins, setting goals for the six-week period, designing an experimental strategy to achieve those goals, and working independently under the guidance of an experienced project supervisor.

They will also become integrated into the host lab group, engaging in informal interactions with other researchers and following the format of scientific conferences to disseminate their work through a written report and an oral presentation.

Additionally, students will participate in a weekly seminar focused on academic writing skills and other discipline-specific topics. This comprehensive program can be undertaken either on-campus in London or fully online, providing flexibility to suit different learning preferences.

The program requires a full-time commitment, with a minimum of 35 hours dedicated to project work in the lab each week. Students will also have one-on-one meetings with their project supervisor and participate in lab group meetings throughout the duration of the six weeks.

Assessment for the program will be based on academic research standards, with the primary deliverables including a Literature Review worth 20% of the grade, a Scientific Paper worth 60%, and an Oral Presentation worth 20%. These assessments will reflect the typical methods used in disseminating academic research, ensuring that students develop valuable skills and achieve a comprehensive understanding of their chosen field.
