Research Opportunity Program

Research Opportunity Program

Discover the Possibilities Are you looking to participate in research? Thinking about grad school? Planning your future career?

...then this is the program for YOU!

The Research Opportunity Program (ROP) gives students from second to fourth year a chance to participate in the research of a faculty member (and sometimes a community member) while earning course credit. Students in the program have the rare opportunity to become involved in hands-on, cutting-edge research, working one-on-one with the university's leading and highly qualified instructors in a range of departments. Through the ROP you will gain practical skills and knowledge that can be applied to careers or toward future graduate studies. You will use your experiences to build strong relationships with instructors, learn about exciting new developments in their research field, and explore new areas of interest.

Most importantly, you become involved in hands-on formal research. Now, where else would you find practical research training in an undergraduate setting?

We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
