Nuffield Research Placements

Nuffield Research Placements provide over 1,000 students each year with the opportunity to work alongside professional scientists (including quantitative social scientists), technologists, engineers and mathematicians.

Students in Year 12 studying science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) courses at a state-maintained school or college in the UK are eligible to apply. The majority of the placements will go to students from low-income households. Nuffield also provide placements to students who do not have a family history of going to university. No one is excluded on a financial basis by covering students’ travel costs and providing weekly bursaries for eligible students. Please see the application criteria via the link below for more information on which students are eligible to apply.

Projects take place in the summer holidays and must have broadly scientific or technical content, but they don’t have to be based in a laboratory. They might be office-based or include fieldwork, or they might focus on engineering, data science or computer science. Placements take place across the UK and are administered in Wales by Techniquest. We are here to help you every step of the way.

The 2020 applications for Nuffield Research Placements are now open. To find out more please click on the link below:
