University of Strathclyde Research Internship for Undergraduates 2024

The goal of Research Interns @ Strathclyde (RI@S) is to provide undergraduates with direct experience of real research environments. To do this, we will be offering a number of funded internships over the summer of 2024, where successful applicants will get the opportunity to carry out an independent, self-contained programme of enquiry in a live research area.

We also offer a research development programme that is open to all undergraduate students at the University of Strathclyde on funded summer internships, work placements or projects. Any students on funded summer scholarships (including RI@S, EPSRC, and Carnegie) are invited to participate in the programme. If you are not funded by one of these schemes but wish to participate, please do get in touch via the contact details below.

The programme offers skills training, workshops, and hands-on insight into the breadth of opportunity in research and is particularly suited for students considering further study and a career in research, inside or outside academia.

Aim and Benefits 

  • Scholarship Value is £2106. 
  • The programme offers skills training, workshops, and hands-on insight into the breadth of opportunity in research and is particularly suited for students considering further study and a career in research, inside or outside academia.

Requirements 

RI@S is aimed at undergraduate students (including international students) of the University of Strathclyde in their penultimate year, i.e., students in the third year of a four-year degree, or the fourth year of a five-year degree (integrated Masters).

Postgraduate students and students who have already completed their undergraduate studies are not eligible to apply. Incoming exchange students are also not eligible as they cannot participate in the whole programme due to the limited time they spend in the University. This does not apply to outgoing Strathclyde students.

The RI@S funding cannot be used to support research that forms part of a credit bearing programme. While the experience should strongly benefit a student's studies through the skills developed, the actual work must not be part of, or directly contribute to, any undergraduate degree programme.

Students may only submit one application to the RI@S programme, though are encouraged to apply for other summer internships available to them. Students should be encouraged to apply for the Carnegie Undergraduate Vacation Scholarships given their prestige and if successful make this their first choice. Supervisors are limited to supporting two applications.
