Summer Projects

Academic Year 2016-17

UCL is offering undergraduate students who are interested in mathematical research the opportunity to do a summer project under the guidance of a member of our department. These projects are especially beneficial for students who are considering doing a PhD and want to get a better understanding of what doing mathematical research entails.

Students should be in their intermediate years (i.e. not in their first or last year). The project usually lasts 6-8 weeks and will take place between the end of the exam period and the start of the new academic year.

Interested students should directly contact the staff member who they are interested in working with about the possibility of doing a summer project with them.
