BSc and MSc projects

Year-In-Industry placements are normally advertised in December.  We welcome applications from students who are currently in their 2nd year of a relevant undergraduate science degree. Placements will be either unfunded but with on-site housing provided, or offered with a £5,000 scholarship.

If English is not your first language, you will be required to provide evidence of your ability. We require an overall IELTS score of 7.0 with no lower than 7.0 in reading and listening, no lower than 6.5 in speaking and no lower than 6.0 in writing.  Other English language qualifications may be accepted.  Successful candidates will be required to pass a security vetting process before commencing the placement.
