Undergraduate Handbook: Undergraduate Research Assistantship Scheme (URAS)

This programme was introduced to promote projects that emphasise the many ways in which Research and Teaching can come together and to give undergraduate students the opportunity to gain experience doing independent research. The URAS is open to any undergraduate student matriculated at the University of St Andrews.  URAS funding (currently at £50 per 6 hours of work, up to £2,000 per School) cannot be used to support research for a credit-bearing programme. The programme is administered by the Proctor’s Office.  For full details of the application process visit
