Undergraduate research opportunities

We welcome undergraduate students from within and outside the University of Cambridge to gain hands-on research experience on real research projects as a member of one of our research groups. Undertaking a research project can increase your transferrable skills, employability and understanding of the research environment.


Undergraduate summer research projects

Each year we offer up to 25 summer research projects to undergraduate students from across the globe.
