Students who are eligible to apply for the scheme will be studying within SCQF level 6 in Scotland (Scottish Highers, NC and SVQ 3), students above this levels are not eligible

The Online Application System for Nuffield Research Placements 2018 has now opened.

The Nuffield Research Placement Scheme is aimed at the current 5th year pupils/students who will be sitting their Highers in 2018 (or college students at the equivalent level of education) and who are studying any Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Maths (STEM) subjects at that level (e.g. Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, Geography, Computing, Home Economics/Food Technology, Psychology, Music Technology, Product Design, Technological Studies etc.). We are also now placing students into Social Science placements where there is an aspect of analysis, statistical investigation and mathematics involved, so the placements are very wide ranging. 

This is a wonderful opportunity for your students and we hope you will promote the scheme to them. The placements help increase confidence and improve key skills including practical, communication, report-writing and presentation skills. They also provide students with excellent experiences & skills to include on CV’s and personal statements. By working with professional scientists and engineers in a real-life environment, the students gain an invaluable insight into a wide variety of careers. 

Below is a summary of the application process: 

•             Students apply by completing an online application which can be accessed on the Nuffield Research Placement webpage at https://www.nuffieldresearchplacements.org/ The application has various sections - personal details, education, personal statement, teacher reference, parent consent, bursary application (if appropriate). 

•             When registering, students insert an email address of the teacher (or lecturer) who is to provide them with a reference.  Once the student fully submits their application the system automatically initiates an email to that teacher to allow them to add reference. 

•             After the closing date (March 6th 2018) applications will be scored, matched to placement projects available/suitable (where possible) and the appropriate applications will be forwarded to various supervisors for their consideration. 

•             If a student and /or teacher has contact details of anyone in local industries/organisations who could offer a placement project, they can include the details on their application, we can then follow this up to check suitability. 

•   If successful matched and accepted to a project by the supervisor, the student is then offered the project.  

•             Placements normally take place at the end of June, July or early August.  The student will normally be working Mon-Fri (9am-5pm) for 4, 5 or 6 weeks. Students should therefore be made aware that is quite a big commitment. 

•             All students will receive reasonable travel costs to and from their placement. Some students may also be eligible for an additional bursary of £100 per week of placement if they fulfil the criteria set out in the application.

 •             Successful students are required to submit a report at the end of their placement and are also invited to display their work in poster format at a celebration event in Edinburgh, taking place at the end of August / early September.
