2-week Research Placements available in STEM this Summer

The Research Placements & Experience programme (formerly Nuffield Research Placements) provides engaging, hands-on projects, where Year 12 students have the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution towards the work of a host organisation through a well-supervised but independent placement collaboration relating to an area of science, quantitative social science, computing, technology, engineering or maths (or a combination!).

Which placement?

Students can participate in Research Placements or Experience Placements. Both offer a rewarding experience for enthusiastic and curious young people.

Research Placements

Research Placements are 2-week collaborations with a STEM-related knowledge expert on a live research question or area of development.

While producing a scientific or technical report and poster, this opportunity ensures that students contribute meaningfully to the host organisation's current work.

Experience Placements

Experience Placements are 5-day explorations with industry experts to identify essential skills needed for employment in a specific STEM sector of interest.

While producing a workbook and reflective report, students gain insight into working in professional environments as well as knowledge of the challenges for different sectors, in turn preparing them for employment.

Students can apply via the button below but please make sure you've checked your eligibility requirements
