    True and also meteorologists (I cannot spell that!).

    However all sponsors require work for the company or organisation for 2-3 years.

    only time i've ever seen a company sponsor someone through uni is either an open university degree or a part time with day release so your still actually working for them.

    There is one guy at the company i'm doing summer placement for who gets £1000 a year but he was sort of a genius child and from a local school which the company likes to support.

    You've got to remember the current climate we're in and also the logic behind what your asking. why would a company pay an unqualified person to go to uni and only work for them for a few months a year, when they can employ a perfectly well qualified and in todays situation experienced person to work for them full time.

    I think your best bet would be to ask in your department aswell, sometimes when an alumni makes it big they will give something back to the uni in the form of scholarships and such, or the university might have links with specific companys that they do consultancy or research for, thats how i landed my summer job this year and have pretty much doubled my student load from the wages
