About the Program

The Undergraduate Research Scholars Program (URSP)

The UAE Federal government, in its "vision 2021" plan, has defined research as one of the pillars to create a knowledge economy.  At Zayed University, this vision is being supported through the Research Office, which has set up the “Undergraduate Research Scholars” (URSP) Program. 

URSP provides students with the opportunity to establish and conduct their own research in disciplines across the entire University. Under the guidance of qualified faculty members and mentors, students undertake an intensive research training that lasts for 2.5 years. The students are required to apply the knowledge and skills gained at university to their own academic research.

By the end of the program, they are required to submit their manuscripts to peer reviewed journals, and they are encouraged to present at international conferences for undergraduate research, such as NCUR/ BCUR.
