Students who enroll in the URFP are generally in their final year studies and have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above. The URFP calls for applications in January each year and students admitted to the programme will have the opportunity to undertake a course component and deliver a research deliverable. They could also submit an application to apply for the Research Internship Award, which supports research internship to be conducted in Hong Kong, mainland China or overseas for not less than 8 weeks.
Ever since the URFP was launched in 2015-16, over 400 students have been selected to receive the Research Internship Awards to conduct their research projects in some 50 institutions across 13 regions, including Australia, Canada, France, Singapore, mainland China, the UK and the US.
