Research Opportunities for Undergraduates

Talented Students Program

The Science Talented Students' Program (TSP) introduces high performing students - entering the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Science (Advanced) - to the Faculty of Science and helps them develop specific skills during their degree.  The program offers these students exposure to research within the Faculty and provides a degree that is flexible and tailored to suit students’ needs and talents.

Invitation to participate in the TSP is made by the Dean of Science on the basis of superior secondary education performance (ATAR or equivalent). All incoming students are assessed for eligibility including non high school leavers. High performing current UNSW Science students, in the BSc or BSc (Advanced), will be invited to join at the end of their first year.
