Nuffield Research Placements

Nuffield Research Placements benefit over 1,000 students each year. They provide the opportunity to work alongside professional scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.

Students in the first year of a post-16 science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) course are eligible to apply. Placements are available across the UK in:

  • universities
  • commercial companies
  • voluntary organisations and
  • research institutions

Nuffield Research Placements are administered at a regional level by a network of Nuffield coordinators.

We particularly encourage students who don’t have a family history of going to university or who attend schools in less well-off areas. We make sure no-one is excluded on a financial basis by covering students’ travel costs. Some students may also be eligible for a weekly bursary in addition to travel expenses. Your regional coordinator will be able to advise on eligibility.

For further information, please see the Nuffield Foundation website.
