Through the Undergraduate Research Fellowship Programme (URFP), academically outstanding undergraduates undertake a research study under the guidance and supervision of academics with a strong research track record and experience in training research postgraduate students. URFP participants selected for the Research Internship Awards under URFP also have the opportunity to take a research internship in a local, mainland or overseas institution as part of the research study. The URFP forms part of the teaching-research nexus and aims to enhance students’ learning experience and nurture the next generation of researchers/scholars. Through the eleven rounds of the Programme to date, some 1,000 students from across all the faculties have enrolled in URFP, and over 400 of them have undertaken internships.
A poster session has been scheduled to take place for the Research Internship Award recipients of URFP 2022-23 to present their research findings and share their experience with other URFP participants, supervisors, undergraduate students and staff, and the wider community of the University. Details of the event are as follows:
Date: April 19, 2023 (Wednesday)
Time: 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
