Vertically Integrated Projects
A Vertically Integrated Project (VIP) is an ongoing research project led by an academic supervisor and made up of a team of students from any level of study (the ‘vertical’ aspect). The team of students can come from different subject areas with diverse backgrounds and skills across both arts and science.
Students can earn credit and receive a grade for the project. They may be able to remain on the project for several semesters if this can be accommodated in the curriculum. Some of our projects are currently accepting applications for 2021-2022. Check the 'Projects' and 'Information for students' pages below for further details.
VIP student applications open
"Participating in a VIP has not only developed my skills in academics but as a young professional as well. The interpersonal and technical skills you gain are easily transferable into the workplace, and I found it has really given me a boost in my applications and job interviews as well.” Emma, School of Management.
