Nuffield Research Placement Scheme – register your interest now!

Every year, The University of Manchester hosts sixth form students participating in the Nuffield Research Placement scheme. The placement is a brilliant way of working with talented young people from local schools who are interested in academic research, and who meet our widening participation criteria.

Register an interest: We are looking for staff and Early Career Researchers who would be willing to host a Nuffield Research Placement student in July or August 2019. The student will work with you for 4 weeks on a project of your choice.

Who is it for? Staff and Early Career Researchers who are interested in offering a project in any area of STEM or quantitative Social Science.

Nuffield Research Placements: Host a Student this Summer

Could you host a sixth form student on a Nuffield Research Placement in July / August 2015?

Last the University of Manchester were proud to have hosted more students than any other institution in the UK. They are now looking for researchers and academic staff who might be interested in offering a Nuffield Research Placement in 2015. Details on what this entails can be found below and in the 2015 Project Providers Leaflet (pdf).

Nuffield Research Placements are a fantastic way of working with young people from local schools and colleges who already have an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths; and giving them an insight into the research which goes on within our University. With The University of Manchester’s commitment to widening participation and supporting talented young people from local schools to progress onto research intensive universities, we really welcome this move – and look forward to working with you to offer a wide range of Nuffield Research Placements this academic year.

If you have been involved in the scheme before, then Sarah Fenton the Regional Coordinator will contact you, either directly, or via a central contact in your School.

If you have not been involved in the scheme before please see below to find out more.

If you are interested in offering a project for 2015; or would like more information, please reply to me at roz.webster@manchester.ac.uk by 31 January in the first instance, and I will pass on your details to Sarah Fenton, the Regional Coordinator.
