Apply: Year 12 Nuffield Research Placements – North West-Specific Application Information

All About STEM is delighted to be the Nuffield Coordinator for the North West, covering Cumbria, Lancashire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester and Cheshire.

Our role is to recruit and support businesses, academic institutions and other relevant stakeholders to host Y12 students to undertake a Nuffield Research Placement and to work with successful students applicants, and their teachers, to ensure the very best experience for all involved.

Nuffield Research Placements are funded by the Nuffield Foundation and delivered by STEM Learning. They are engaging, hands-on research projects, where students have the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution towards the work of a host organisation. They are a fantastic opportunity for students to apply skills and knowledge learned at school and work alongside researchers and industry professionals to:

– Develop subject understanding alongside research and quantitative skills to expand career prospects

– Learn more about higher education and different career paths

– Enhance UCAS personal statements and applications to university.

– Apply for a Gold CREST Award or the Big Bang Competition
