Student life isn’t just about learning in class, undergraduates have the chance to undertake their own original research through our Undergraduate Social Research Training Program (USRTP). At OUHK, we want to nurture the next generation of researchers and scholars. The USRTP means that outstanding social sciences undergraduate students don’t need to wait until their post-graduate studies in order to do so, offering them the chance to conduct original research under the supervision of experienced academics. The USRTP is one of our signature programs designed to provide undergraduate social sciences students with an exciting opportunity to engage in academic research, thereby helping them to develop insightful perspectives on their areas of interest and advance the frontiers of knowledge.
Launched in 2019, USRTP has been well received by both students and faculty members. It is now offered in three semesters (Autumn, Spring and Summer) throughout the academic year, which allows students to immerse themselves in a variety of tailor-made research projects under the supervision of faculty members.
