What is SURE?

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.

A range of projects will be available in the fields of astrophysics, space science, and condensed matter physics.

Applications are now closed for 2016

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.

2016 Dates

SURE 2016 will run from Monday 18th July to Friday 26th August 2016.

Finances and Accommodation

Students will receive an allowance (approx. £305 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.

SURE is administered by Dr Leigh Fletcher.  Please Contact Us with your queries.
