Hi everyone

This is a thread for anyone who is applying for a Nuffield Research Placement in summer 2019!

I completed my placement in 2016, so am more than happy to answer any questions about placements or the application process

To kick things off, it would be nice for everyone to introduce themselves- maybe start with:

Region:
Area of Interest: (i.e. Which area of STEM you want a placement in)
Current Studies:
Application Status: Not yet submitted/ Submitted/ Successful/ Unsuccessful


If anyone has just found this thread and wants to know more about Nuffield Placements, they are basically 4-6 week long placements where you complete your own STEM research project within a university, company or organisation. You need to be in English/Welsh Year 12, Scottish S5 or Northern Irish Year 13 to be able to apply. The deadline for applying is dependant on the region you live in, and some are fast approaching!

There's loads more information for anyone who needs it here: http://www.nuffieldfoundation.org/nu...rch-placements

Good question! I can't remember for absolute certain, and know some thing might have change since I applied 3 years ago, but I think I could. You can also ask your teacher if they can email/show you it

Hi sorry I can’t answer your question but can I ask you a question, have you submitted your application for the program if so on your teacher reference when they upload it were you able to read it or not?
Thanks

Yeah it does, and the bits where you put in your teacher's name/email grey out so you can't change it.
