Nuffields Research Placement

Inspiring the next generation

Nuffield Research Placements are supervised but independent research projects relating to an area of science, quantitative social science, computing, technology, engineering or maths (or a combination of these).

They take place over the summer after Year 12 or S5 and involve both online activities and two-weeks on-site research*. Placements take place at a variety of locations including offices, museums, research centres, laboratories or fieldwork settings across the UK. Your on-site placement activity will not cost you or your parents/carers anything. We reimburse travel costs for all students, and depending on your family circumstances, you may also be eligible to receive a bursary.
