The period of undergraduate study is a key term for innovative talents cultivation. The Geographical Base of Beijing Normal University has been working hard on the exploration of the mechanism, modes and approaches of training on scientific research for undergraduates at an early stage. According to the new concept of “inquiry teaching” and “teaching and researching interaction”, based on abundant resources in research such as key laboratories at three levels (Beijing Municipality, the Ministry of Education and National Funds), National Key Discipline, national researching and teaching projects, and relied on a high standard team -‘Chief Supervisors + tutors team’-involving members of academicians, “Cheungkong Scholars”, receivers of National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars (NSFC), and National Distinguished Teachers, a scheme, supporting researching projects of undergraduate-as-coordinator, has been improved, and a personality-oriented training system on scientific research for undergraduates has been established, which is a “stage-subject-ability” 3-dimensional platform of multi-subjects, multi-patterns, and multi-stages.

Key words: Chief Supervisors, geography, project, training on scientific research, tutors team, undergraduate students
