Nuffield Research Placements: Top Testimonials

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).

If you’re thinking of getting involved as a student or a host organisation, there is no better way to discover the benefits of this programme than through a selection of our phenomenal 2020/21 feedback!

Here is a selection of testimonials from our incredible learners:

“On my Nuffield Research Placement I learnt a lot about work-life and how it’s very different from school, I really liked being more independent. The work was very interesting to me and I learnt lots of new things. My supervisors were really nice and I felt like I could email them whenever I needed them.”

“I got to undertake a real-life research project and learn so many skills and new information. This will be very useful when I attend university! I can also apply for the Gold CREST award for free.”

“This opportunity granted me the chance to communicate and work with others which I never really had the chance to in school. The placement taught me a lot in the subject area and I developed skills in teamwork, communicating, presenting and organising my work.”

“My research coordinator was incredibly supportive and I gained a deep insight into quantum mechanics. I thoroughly enjoyed the pre-placement module about using coding in excel, it was incredibly fun!”

“I really enjoyed being able to meet and communicate with health professionals from the specific field I was interested in. I also enjoyed being able to build my networking skills and speak to different people.”

“The webinars were a way to enhance your knowledge and learn something new, putting you ahead of everybody else.”

“Meeting my placement provider helped me to thoroughly understand what I was doing, if I didn’t know anything, he’d supply me with the information needed. Discussing (similar) passions in subjects like physics with my placement provider made the placement exceptional.”
