Entry to SURE is through a competitive application procedure; the typical application to success ratio is 10:1. Successful candidates will be allocated an individual research project and supervisor.
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 2017 will run from Monday 17th July to Friday 25th August 2017.
Finances and Accommodation
