The SUPER (South Bank Undergraduate Participation & Experience in Research) Scheme is a programme for students in nutrition, sport science, psychology and bioscience, from Extended Degree through to Masters Level and beyond.
The SUPER Scheme allows you to flexibly participate in a range of research activities, peer-to-peer learning opportunities and cross-disciplinary social interactions. A wide variety of activities are on offer, including recruiting and testing subjects for public health research projects, data entry and analysis, writing for an in-house magazine, desktop publishing, learning support groups and even a chance to get involved in assisting teaching.
SUPER Scheme members can gain Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum award certificates according to how many hours they are involved.
Participation and certification allow for significant work experience to be recorded, enhancing your CV and graduate employment prospects.
As a member, you'll join a highly supportive, diverse social network of fellow SUPER Schemers. The Scheme currently hosts around 100 students and continues to grow in popularity, with new members from diverse cohorts.
Hear from some of our students on the scheme:
The scheme is a wonderful place to become more confident and push yourself to achieve more.
"Being a part of the SUPER Scheme has been a thoroughly brilliant experience. The Scheme is a wonderful place to become more confident and push yourself to achieve more. It trains you to become the best version of yourself, so that when you eventually leave, you will have the exact skillset needed to perform in your workplace. For me, the scheme has been a life-changing experience, making me more assured in my abilities."
- Banu Godfri, PhD student
The SUPER Scheme has given me several opportunities, all of which have increased my academic performance and certainly my future career prospects.
"The SUPER Scheme has given me several opportunities, all of which have increased my academic performance and certainly my future career prospects. Through, peer training I have obtained knowledge above and beyond my course material. By volunteering to recruit and test participants, I’ve obtained valuable insight as to how research projects are run. I have assisted in teaching, conducted nutritional consultations and trained new SUPER scheme members, all of which have all developed my professional skills in communication and leadership."
