Nuffield Research Placements
The STEM NOW team works in partnership with STEM Sussex to deliver the Nuffield Research Placements in Hampshire. This wonderful programme provides over 1000 students from around UK with the opportunity to work alongside professional scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
Students in the first year of a post-16 STEM course are eligible to apply for placements in universities, commercial companies, voluntary organisations and research institutions. During the placement each student will spend time actively producing their own research project, with support from industry and academic professionals.
Nuffield particularly encourage students who don't have a family history of going to university or who attend schools in less affluent areas. They ensure 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.
