Student Research Programmes



Undergraduate Research Experience on Campus (URECA)

Code: EE00xU
Type: Unrestricted Elective
Academic Unit: 4

URECA is a university wide programme to cultivate a research culture amongst the ablest undergraduates in NTU. URECA is available to undergraduates (second and third years in four-year Bachelor’s degree programmes and second years in three-year Bachelor’s degree programmes) who have excelled in their academic examinations.

This ‘select’ group of undergraduates are eligible for either stipend, without academic units or with academic units and if they choose to undertake URECA, they will be known as NTU President Research Scholars (NTU PRSs). NTU PRSs are required to undertake a research project for a minimum of 160 hours over a 10-month in an academic year.

Invitations are sent to eligible students in August.  For more information, please refer to the URECA website:
