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.

This is a brilliant opportunity for students to apply skills and knowledge learned at school and work alongside real-life experts!

Nuffield Research and Experience Placements in the North West 

Although a national programme, Nuffield Research and Experience Placements are managed by a network of regional coordinators.  This means there can be slight differences, for example with application submission dates, in how the programme runs in each area.
