Nuffield Research Placements - Summer 2020
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the uncertainty and disruption it creates is likely to have an impact on whether and how we provide Nuffield Research Placements this summer.
Universities have closed and many businesses are operating remotely; travel is restricted and social distancing remains in place. It is therefore unlikely that students will be able to undertake on-site research placements this summer. We are currently exploring alternative options, including ways we might deliver an equivalent and rewarding experience without the need to undertake an on-site placement.
We will share our plans for summer 2020 placements at the earliest opportunity, through our website and our network of regional coordinators. In the meantime, we encourage students to continue applying for places and for providers to propose potential research ideas.
We recognise the effort that students have made, supported by parents, carers, and teachers, to apply for a 2020 Nuffield Research Placement and by providers who have already outlined potential projects. Our aim remains to support you insofar as it will be possible.
An amazing opportunity awaits
