We regret that we are unable to accommodate work experience requests.
This is due to the advanced nature of the research work undertaken, and the many years of training required of the scientists undertaking it. Experience has taught us that it is exceedingly rare for us to be able to provide realistic work experience for KS4 and KS5 students in these disciplines.
We hope that this won't put students off the pursuit of a career in science and mathematics as a result, and that they will encourage their teachers to engage with the University via one of the programmes set out on this page. In particular, students who are currently undertaking Year 12/Lower Sixth/AS levels may wish to investigate the Nuffield Research Placements (please see the Nuffield Research Placements menu on this page). This is different to the traditional Work Experience programme, and offers science students a deeper insight into scientific research.
