A Successful Summer of Nuffield Placements 2017

Nuffield Research Placements give Year 12 students across the UK a chance to complete a real research project for 4-6 weeks over the summer. Students work alongside professional scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians at various universities, companies and research institutions.

This year we had over 378 applications, which is a record number! With only 70 placements available across the East Midlands, all of the students that were successful in obtaining a placement should be extremely proud of themselves.

The 2017 Nuffield Celebration Event was a big success, giving students, providers, teachers and parents the chance to celebrate students achievements. At the Celebration Event, students are encouraged to exhibit a poster, which displays their hard work whilst on placement. This year we have seen some amazing posters with positive feedback from other project providers, so a massive well done to all students!

After completing a Nuffield Research Placement students are encouraged to put their projects forward for a CREST Gold Award which is a well-respected accreditation scheme that can be included in university applications.  The CREST Awards are endorsed by UCAS for inclusion in a personal statement. This year we have had many successful students gaining a Gold Crest Award.

We would like to say a big Thank You to all involved in the 2017 Scheme and look forward to Nuffield 2018
