    Hi everyone,

    I have been offered a place on the Nuffield Research Placement scheme, which I am really excited about. The only problem is that I go to an independent school, and so I have to source my own project. Does anyone who has sourced their own project as a part of this scheme before have any tips as to how to go about finding a placement? The email I received indicated that I had to find a placement in my area specifically, and based on research and development; this makes it slightly harder as there isn't much going on around where I live. What should I look for in a placement, and how do I go about contacting any institutions who I think might be able to potentially help me-do I check with Nuffield first, or just contact them directly and hope for the best? thank you in advance-I'm really confused here! :confused:

    Hi, same here. I really don't know where to look. I've already emailed some places I found from uni websites within London but no ones responding. At this point I don't know what to do either. Did you find a place?
