Do you have a burning desire to do your own research into something that really interests you? If so - here's your chance!
You do not need to choose a project from the list, you can devise one yourself.
You will need to find a suitable member of academic staff within UCL who agrees to supervise you. They should also assist you with the project-related element of your application.
The project needs to be:
- something you’re really interested in,
- at an appropriate academic level, and
- realistically achievable within six weeks.
Due to the current uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, your project must also be adaptable to run online only if necessary.
Bear in mind that undertaking your own devised project will demand a lot of self-reliance – you’ll need to organise your own work and your own time, negotiate with others as needed, and try to find a way through any setbacks.
Having said that, it can be immensely satisfying to complete your own piece of research at a high level.
