Research Participation System

The Research Participation System (RPS) at the Department of Linguistics at SFU provides students with the opportunity to experience what research in linguistics is like by participating as subjects in projects conducted or supervised by various faculty. At the same time, students can earn credit towards participating linguistics courses.

  • Students are allowed to participate in more than one project.
  • Each set of points can be applied to ONE course only (no duplication of points)

  • Different instructors may have different ways of including RPS points in their overall grade assessment. Please see their course syllabus for the grading policy
  • If you would like to participate in a study, please use the direct booking link or send an email to the contact person of the study to make an appointment.
