  • Overview

    Overview:

    • This course provides opportunities for research conducted through the university which serves as a platform for students interested in pursuing research during the academic period either on either a short or long term basis.
    • A university faculty member will continue to follow up with the student performing research to formalize their stay at the university. Students participating in the research program have access to all university services offered through the International Student Mobility.
    • Enrollment in the research course is offered for undergraduate and graduate students depending on each specific case. Students pursing research on a part-time basis may also enroll in additional classes at the university.

    Benefits:
    • Increase the presence of international students on the university campus through its connection to courses which promote research in various areas of study.
    • The researcher will work directly with a faculty tutor who will guide the student's process through the research and will provide direction and management.
    • The student will be enrolled at the university for the duration of their research project. In case the student does not complete their research project they will be responsible for any associated costs.
    • The research project option aims to provide an alternative to the regular incoming academic exchange program. The researcher will have the option to take courses from the regular curriculum of academic programs from the university if conducting research on a part-time basis. The research program must be approved for credit by the student's home institution.
    • Note: Students must demonstrate an interest in research.

    Selection Criteria:
    • Student approval for the research project will be evaluated on the following criteria:
    • Academic performance
    • Attitudes, aptitudes and abilities of the student to work in a multicultural research environment.
    • Ability and interest in linking research groups at the university.
    • Review of the applicant's research proposal and CV (resume).

    Process of applying to conduct the research project:
    • Prior to the start of the program, candidates will send their research proposal and CV (resume) to the ISA Barranquilla Site Specialist who will pass the materials to the UniNorte.
    • The International Student Mobility Office at the UniNorte will conduct an assessment of the candidates to select the course participants and coordinate the faculty tutors.
    • If a student is not approved for the research project they will instead enroll in regular university courses.

    Structure of the System of Research at the UniNorte
    Currently at the university there are 40 identified groups of research which brings together more than 250 research projects, developing and innovating technology with external resources, which together with the projects represent a good part of our scientific and technical activity.

    For the full list of all reserach areas (in Spanish) along with descriptions of each area, please visit the Research Groups section of the UniNorte website.
