UQ Undergraduate Advanced Study Program in Science (ASPinS)
IMB supports the Faculty of Science Advanced Study Program in Science (ASPinS), and provides an opportunity for ASPinS students to gain research experience via an Independent Research Project, working alongside some of the university’s leading academics and researchers. Participation will extend your knowledge of an area of interest and develop your analytical, critical thinking, and communication skills.
IMB Undergraduate Research Projects are available in selected IMB Research Groups, with the duration and level of time commitment being negotiated on a case by case basis.
IMB regularly hosts UQ undergraduate students. See Testimonials.
