Academic Year 2018-2019 Application cycle is CLOSED
We anticipate that our application window will re-open at the end of October 2019 for summer 2020 placements. All placements are currently awaiting confirmation and are subject to staff and facility availability. Please check this webpage regularly for updates.
Application process: important information
The Faculty of Science and Engineering allocate work experience placements using an application process. This is to ensure equal opportunities for students and a fair selection process. Please be aware that we are unable to offer placements to all students that apply due to the volume of applications that we receive. It is therefore a competitive process and placements are awarded to students based on the content of their application form. We do not offer placements on a first submitted, first selected basis. All applications are read and reviewed at the same time, see below for the application timeline.
