The ICUR LARP (Leadership and Advanced Research Program) is a prestigious, externally-funded, invitation-only program aimed at high-achieving students interested in considering a career in research in both industry and academia. It is designed to provide an opportunity for talented undergraduates from all disciplines and areas across Monash University to work together in multidisciplinary research teams, encompassing not just their peers at Monash but also fellow undergraduates at other world class universities in Singapore, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Students acquire and hone highly sought-after skills in research and leadership; identify and develop research synergies across disciplines; learn to write up their research for different publication genres including refereed journals; develop competency and agility to work in a global, cross-cultural environment; and refine their ability to communicate complex research findings and ideas to intelligent multidisciplinary audiences. Students can also access exclusive international mobility funding schemes that are built into the unit to gain experience in writing applications for funding, and deepen transnational collaborative links and experiences within and between student teams.


Upon successful completion of the unit students will be able to:

  1. develop a high level of cross-cultural literacy in leading and managing a multidisciplinary research team that spans the globe;
  2. develop the ability to initiate and lead multidisciplinary approaches to solving problems;
  3. understand the commonalities and specificities of research imperatives at local, regional, and global levels;
  4. develop the ability to communicate sophisticated ideas in a perceptive and effective manner across cultures;
  5. understand the process involved in the design, development, and implementation of a research project as a leader of a team.
