Working with professional scientists and engineers in a real-life environment, current S5 students have an opportunity to gain valuable insights into a wide variety of careers.

The Nuffield Research Placement Scheme is aimed at students who will be sitting their Highers in 2016 and who are studying any Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Maths (STEM) subjects at that level (e.g. Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, Geography, Computing, Home Economics/Food Technology, Psychology, Music Technology, Product Design, Technological Studies etc).

Placements are by selection and take place at the end of June, July or early August. Students will normally work 9am-5pm Mon- Fri  for 4,5 or 6 weeks and all travel costs will be covered.
