Nuffield Research

Year 12 science students had a visit from Julie Cattermole from the Nuffield Foundation on Monday, OSA students apply for, and undertake, Nuffield Research placements in the summer, after AS exams, usually involving lab work in professional research laboratories. It is really helpful to them to see how the theory they learn in class is applied in the real world of science – and an exciting opportunity.

The students find these placements hugely useful in university applications in Year 13.
