Work Experience

If you are thinking about a career in science you may want to consider a work experience placement. Please note that we are not taking unsolicited applications at the moment, due to COVID-19 restrictions.


Work experience for school students

Student working in the lab

We invite you to apply by submitting a student pro forma via your school's work experience co-ordinator (please send this to our administration team). All work experience placements will be for between one to two weeks.

Our administration team will then liaise with academics in the School to match your interest and experience with one of our current projects. If we can find a match, we will send an offer letter to your school.

Successful students are invited to an informal interview a couple of weeks before the placement begins. This allows you to meet with your supervisor, and for you to see EEES and to ask any questions.

Work experience for undergraduate students

Occasionally, we are able to host visiting undergraduate students to gain detailed research experience working alongside an academic on an identified research project. If you are interested in gaining some experience, please contact our administration team with the following details:

  • Name
  • University
  • Degree and current year of study
  • Dates available
  • Areas of interest
  • Current CV

We will circulate your details to the relevant academics in the School and will get back to you if a suitable project arises. Visiting student placements can be of any duration.

If you have any further queries about a work experience placement, please feel free to contact our administration team.
