The Undergraduate Research Scholarship Scheme (URSS) allows students to become directly involved in the research work of the University, experience what it's like to be a member of a research team and take part in cutting-edge research.

The Reinvention Centre
The Reinvention Centre (launched on 12th October 2005) is one of Warwick sucessful Centre for Excellence bids. The centre's purpose is foucesed around developing, consolidating and enhancing research-based learning within the undergraduate curriuculum
- Promotes new methods in teaching and learning with a focus on research-based learning
- Redesigns the spaces in which students learn
- Funds undergraduates to carry out research
- Funds academics to develop research-based teaching
- Is complementary to the Undergraduate Research Scholarship Scheme
Technology Enhanced Learning at Research-Led Institutions (TELRI)
In establishing links between research and teaching, TELRI has focused on the cognitive skills of researchers and professional practitioners, defined some of them, and suggested how they can be developed and assessed in students and supported using ICT. The fundamental premise of TELRI is a belief that the research process is inherently a learning process. As such research-like approaches provide a valuable model for student learning approaches and the design of appropriate forms of assessment.
TELRI has been developing educational and technological approaches for course and assignment design that enhances the transferable and cognitive skills and problem solving abilities of students in higher education. Spanning the disciplines, TELRI has implemented research-based approaches effectively and efficiently in over eighty course modules across several institutions.
