Nuffield Research Placements

The Centre for Widening Participation offers summer placements for science students who have applied for a Nuffield Placement.  In the past placements have been offered in Sports Science, Rural Science, Biological Sciences, Environmental Science and Earth Science.

The Nuffield Foundation offers placements to Year 12 students. The scheme helps students to take part in science based projects in universities, industries or research institutions during the summer holidays.

Placements at Aberystwyth University usually take place alongside our Summer University programme and students are offered accommodation etc. for the duration of their placement. Students are also able to participate in the social aspects of Summer University.

Application is made through your school or college and the Nuffield website, where you will be matched to projects.

Feel free to contact us should you have any questions, or follow us on Twitter or Facebook for any updates.
