Since its launch in 2019, the URVP program has already matched 553 students with 335 projects, and we hope to match as many this year.
Through the online URVP portal, you can set up your profile and apply to research volunteer opportunities in various faculties/schools, and not limited to your faculty/school. In the profile, you should indicate your interest in research themes and type of work. Based on the profile, you will then be matched to a suitable project by a URVP coordinator.
The system is now open for applications until October 29th, 2021. You can apply by completing the following steps:
2. Log in using your AUBnet student email/password
3.Fill out your profile, and your research interest. Adding specific (not generic) research interests can increase your chances of being matched.
4. Fill out your time availability
5. Browse the various research programs and read their descriptions
6. Apply to those you are interested in, students from any faculty can apply to any program
The research commitment is expected to be 8-10 hrs/week. Matching of student volunteers to projects will be initiated as of October 30th, 2021 and students will start working with their supervisors starting on November 9, 2021 till May 2, 2022. Students who complete the URVP experience successfully will receive a certificate of participation.
