http://www.nuffieldresearchplacements.org/There are opportunities for their students to obtain placements and potential financial support in the form of bursary.Placements are available across the UK, in universities, commercial companies, voluntary organisations and research institutions.Nuffield Research Placements are administered at a regional level by a network of Nuffield coordinators.
We particularly encourage students who don't have a family history of going to university or who attend schools in less well-off areas. We make sure no-one is excluded on a financial basis by covering students' travel costs. Some students may also be eligible for a weekly bursary in addition to travel expenses. Your regional coordinator will be able to advise on eligibility.
