Work Experience


  • Get your 16-17 year olds to make the most of their winter holidays by applying for the Renishaw Engineering Experience! This is an incredible opportunity for UK students to gain an insight into the world of engineering.  It is a fully subsidised five day residential UK tour of innovative and topical engineering achievements and the companies involved with them.


  • Nuffield Research Placements enable students to join a research or development project with practising scientists and technologists in an area of science, technology or engineering that interests them during their summer vacation. In order to apply for the scheme, students must be in the first year of a post-16 science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) course.  Projects run for four weeks in the summer vacation.

    The scheme is now closed to applications for 2015. See the website for more details of how to get involved in 2016.
