Application deadlines for the Nuffield Foundations Research Placements programme have just been announced.
Open to candidates on a regional basis, students in their first year of A-levels, AS-levels, BTEC, Scottish Highers, or the International Baccalaureate studying all areas of science, technology, engineering and maths, are eligible to apply. Nuffield Research Placements offer students participation in authentic, hands-on research projects within host organisations. Students have a defined project to work on and are well supervised but expected to work independently and use their own initiative. For example, William Dash had the opportunity to create computer simulations using Master Differential Equations over the summer at Plymouth University. Detailed guidance is available on the website and further information and support is available via Regional Nuffield Co-ordinators.
