Nuffield Research Placements

Nuffield Research Placements give sixth form students hands-on experience of a professional research environment through a four to six-week placement in their summer holidays. By working with professional researchers, students gain an insight into a wide variety of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) careers.

The programme is run by the Nuffield Foundation and works through regional networks to link talented students with organisations undertaking research. It partners with over 200 different organisations including universities, commercial companies, voluntary organisations and research institutes.

This year, The Brilliant Club is supporting The Nuffield Foundation to run its placements across London. To help us provide these experiences for students, we are asking our PhD Tutors to consider hosting a Nuffield Research Placement. By providing a placement, your organisation can give someone a life-changing opportunity that will help transform them into a future scientist.

You can find out more about the opportunity to host a pupil here, and there is more information in this poster. If you are interested to find out more, please email Fern Gibbons.
