Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Work Experience - ACCOMODATION (harwell campus)

Hello, fine people of the world!

I was wondering whether there was,
a) anyone who has been on a Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Work Experience - how you did you find it?
b) anyone who is going on the work experience this year (and whether they'd want to team up with me to find accom)
c) anyone who lives near Harwell campus/Harwell/Didcot who has a spare bedroom and is looking to make a little bit of extra cash over the summer

Many thanks in advance!

Yes I have! I also applied to the Daresbury laboratory, so I'll let you know when that (most likely rejection) email comes through!

Thank you!! I was overjoyed haha!

In regards to Daresbury, I ranked the Accelerator Science and Technology Centre (ASTeC) Department as number 1, Technology Nuclear Physics as number 2 and Technology *Detector Systems as number 3. Within that, I was interested in the:
Accelerator Diagnostics and Instrumentation Technician Project,
Electrical Engineering Project,
Mechanical Design Engineering Project 2,
Technical Engineering Project,
Vacuum Science Technician Project.

They all sound super cool though, and if by some miracle I get a place there as well I would be happy doing anything! What about you, what projects did you apply for?

I ranked

1.

Hartree Centre

2.

Scientific Computing Department

3.

Technology - Control Systems and Safety Interlocks

Within these I was interested in the Machine Learning and Data Analysis Project, Technical Engineering Project, and the Computer-Aided Design and Engineering Project. However, I most want to do the Machine Learning and Data Analysis Project, so tbh I based all of my longer answers around that

Are you in year 12 as well?

ooo very cool! I take it you're more of a computer science-y person? And I am actually in year 13, so this placement is going to be an incredible way to end exams!

Oh wow, that pays well HAHA! Do you have any idea of where you would like to apply for?

Yes, I applied to Cambridge (ofc I didn't get in ahha), Durham (my firm), Lancaster (might be my insurance), Exeter (also might be my insurance), and Royal Holloway (I have no feelings for rhul), to study a Masters in Physics!! I'm incredibly excited to start! That is, if I get the grades LMAO

i've been thinking maybe bath or imperial, but places are getting stupidly competitive so may have to reconsider aha

congrats on durham! what is your offer?

i'm convinced cambridge isn't a real place atp
