SURE Summer Programme

SURE is a six-week summer programme which will support up to six undergraduate students to undertake research within the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Space Research Centre at the University of Leicester.

Entry to SURE is through a competitive application procedure; the typical application to success ratio is 20:1. Applicants are required to have at least three years of experience of an undergraduate course in a relevant subject area by the time of the summer programme. Successful candidates will be allocated an individual research project and supervisor based on their skills and preferences.

Regular seminars will be held on current research topics, involving students and staff.  At the end of the summer, all participating students will produce a written report and give a brief presentation about their work.

SURE 2020 will run from Monday 13th July to Friday 21st August 2020.

Students will receive an allowance (approx. £333 p/w, less tax and National Insurance) from which they are expected to fund their accommodation, cost of living and travel expenses.  Accommodation is available for those students requiring it.
