I really want to study for a masters at a top university and although I achieved a 1st class two of my modules in my second year were rather low scoring. So, I was wondering how should I go about getting some work experience in a university research lab? Should I just email a professor who's work interest me and ask if they could provide me with some? If anyone has managed to do this and could share their experience that would be great!

You pretty much have to email a bunch of people to see if they have space/money and are willing to take you on. Depending on your field there may be some summer schemes around. Your department is the best place to look including people who teach you or who you may want to do your final year project with.
