Vertically Integrated Projects

Education with an edge


Red and Blue logo for VIPs  

Are you a student looking to boost your employability as part of your degree? Are you an academic staff member keen to explore research-led teaching? We welcome you to explore Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP): the modules with a difference. VIPs are modules with a difference!

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 credits 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.
