Student Summer Research

Student Summer Research Awards

This 8-week elective module provides an ideal opportunity for undergraduate students to undertake a supervised research project with the potential of gaining 10 ECTS credits towards their degree programme. 

The research projects take place during the third (summer) trimester in a variety of locations within UCD and at our affiliated hospital sites.  The initiative is open to students from all our undergraduate programmes.

Participating students compete for the Student Summer Research Awards (SSRA) through poster and oral presentations.  Presentations are adjudicated by a committee of principal investigators from across the School and beyond.
