Applications for KURF 2023 are now open!

The King’s Undergraduate Research Fellowship (KURF) applications are now officially open! Apply now via King’s Careers Connect, where you will also find the link to all the research projects available! 

King’s Undergraduate Research Fellowships give undergraduate students the unique opportunity to learn alongside our leading academics during the summer. Successful applicants for the Fellowships are also enrolled on the King’s Experience Research Award, which enables students to gain formal recognition for their role as Research Fellows. Successful completion of the Research Award will feature on students’ Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR). 

It would be an amazing learning opportunity to work on a project outside of your department. Especially if you are unsure about which career path you would like to go down, the interdisciplinary applications can encourage and help you find your direction. It also provides you with experience and exposure to help you decide your next steps, whether it is in pursuing further study, or in demonstrating your leadership and drive to future employers.  

Students can be involved in research in a variety of ways: 

  • library or archive research 
  • laboratory projects 
  • undertaking qualitative research 
  • undertaking interviews     

What skills can students develop? 

  • understanding of research methods 
  • presentation skills
