Since 2001, we’ve sponsored over 100 students from more than 25 universities through our OS Dissertation Programme.
We look out for students who are doing research that fits in with our research strategy, and where we will have an in-house expert that can supervise alongside a student’s university supervisor. We provide advice, data where required and if available, and then sponsorship of up to £1,000 once you complete your dissertation.
If you’re a student, come to us with your project ideas and we can discuss whether they match our research interests. We’d be very happy to talk about your project objectives and work with you to produce good quality research with valuable outcomes. Alternatively, you could start by looking through our research topics to find a subject that interests you, and then we can discuss how your courses needs relate to our research ideas.
If you would like more information and to be considered for the Programme, please complete the form on their website.
Research at OS
We are always looking for ways to better our data – from the moment it’s captured to how it’s used across innovation and the digital world.
We have a very active research programme here at OS. Our aim is to improve the way we capture and deliver data by using new, ground-breaking techniques, and to expand the use of geographic information (GI) in the UK.
We carry out our research both internally and through supporting university research at all levels. We focus on four main areas:
- Collecting data
- Data science
- Technical infrastructure
