Nuffield Research Placements
- Available on request
- More than one day
- Available in Welsh
We work in partnership with the Nuffield Foundation to offer research placements at the University.
These research placements are for students in their first year of a Post-16 STEM course and usually last four to six weeks. Placements are offered during school or college summer holidays.
The scheme gives students a chance to work alongside our STEM researchers and to carry out their own piece of real-life research. It is is particularly targeted at students from low-income or disadvantaged backgrounds. These students may be awarded a weekly bursary while they are on placement.
The project provides a well-recognised achievement to put on their UCAS application or CV. The placements also support them to enhance their written and verbal communication skills and overall levels of confidence.
