Academic Institutions: Host a Nuffield Research Placement
Are you an inspirational institution?
Can you offer a bright, capable young student a real-life experience?
Academic Institutions can inspire young people to gain STEM skills by hosting a Nuffield Research Placement!
Nuffield Research Placements (NRPs) are engaging, real-life research or development projects, where talented Year 12 (or equivalent) students are placed at the heart of a UK host organisation. They are a fantastic opportunity for students to apply skills and knowledge learned at school while providing a meaningful contribution to the work of researchers and industry professionals.
How do I offer a placement?
Nuffield Research Placements are administered by a network of regional coordinators across the UK. Your Nuffield coordinator will select students who are suitable for your project and will support them throughout the process. The first step is to have a conversation with your local coordinator, who will tell you all you need to know about hosting a student.
