    Looking for physics work experience,/placement for this year. Really struggling to find anything STEM related, does anyone have any ideas? I was thinking of emailing uni physics departments but i doubt that would have any success. Has anyone done this before? Thank you!!

    Definitely e-mail universities, I did for chemistry and 3 unis near me replied. Also although its no work experience, look into a Headstart course ( a summer school for STEM subjects )

    Thanks, I tried that but I don't qualify for it as my parents both went to uni.
