    Does anyone know where I could look for placements in chemistry for during the summer 2013? I would be going in to my 3rd year of my course at that point... just wondering. It was a long summer last year and I feel as though I could do something productive this year.

    Thanks.

    Do your Uni not email you opportunities and links? I must get about 3 every single day. Moreso now I'm in my final year as more and more people will be looking for careers.
    I'd spend the day googling. I don't have much experience with this as I've never planned on going into industry

    We get the odd one about placements abroad but that's not very often. I'll dedicate a day to looking online and finding places that take on undergraduates for a placement. We get a placement for a year in our 4th year but more experience surely can't be bad!

    Good luck with teaching!

    Yeah, a few of my friends did internships after 1st year so when they went on placement after 2nd year they felt a lot more prepared for it, so it's definitely worth doing!
    And thanks
