Nuffield Research Placements: Getting Your Year 12 Students Involved
Nuffield Research Placements are a fantastic opportunity for Y12 students to apply skills and knowledge learned at school and work alongside researchers and industry professionals.
The Nuffield Research Placements programme provides engaging, hands-on research projects, where Year 12 students have the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution towards the work of a host organisation through a well-supervised but independent research collaboration relating to an area of science, quantitative social science, computing, technology, engineering or maths (or a combination!).
Remote/virtual placements are an option.
Student benefits include:
“Challenge yourself with a meaningful and rewarding supervised research project in a professional working environment.”
Gain new skills
“Learn to write a scientific report and develop your research, critical thinking and time management skills.”
“Gain workplace skills and take an inside look at the sort of careers available to you.”
Build your confidence
“Take responsibility for your own project that’ll be useful to professional scientists, social scientists, engineers, technologists and/or mathematicians.”
“Engage in a unique experience with professionals and become more confident working on novel situations.”
“Connect with your peers and make new network contacts you can keep in touch with in the future.”
