    Hey guys could you tell me what the Nuffield Foundation is? I got an application form from college but don't have much idea what it's about, could people who've done the research placement tell me what it's about and would I benefit from doing it, I'm hoping to study Medicine in the future. Thanks

    I did a Physics research placement via the CREST scheme in association with Nuffield.

    It was a four week project, that resulted in a CREST Gold Award. You don't get any UCAS points for it, but I put it as the centrepiece on my personal statement, and was asked about it in all my interviews. It was a lot of fun, and my supervisor helped me out loads after it had finished as well (mock interviews, explaining to me in more detail the Physics of what we did, etc).
