The Unit runs a programme, predominantly in the period of the long summer vacation, for undergraduates to become part of a research team, allowing them to work alongside the Unit’s scientists and to participate in the Unit’s programme of seminars and scientific discussions. The aims are to provide high quality training in research methods, and to allow the student to carry out original research with help and supervision. Occasionally, if the students’ circumstances allow it, and with the agreement of the supervisor, students may work in the Unit under the same programme at other times of the year.
During the period of the Studentship, the students are paid a stipend at rates determined by the extent of undergraduate training that the student has received. The duration of the studentship is negotiable up to a maximum of six months. The stipends for 2013 are:
|£ (per annum pro rata)|
|(after first year at University)|
|Point 2||14,420||(after second year at University)|
|Point 3||14,894||(after third year at University)|
The Summer Students’ Programme is open to students who are UK nationals, or who have UK residence qualifications, and to overseas students who are attending a British University for full time education with valid student visa for the period of the Summer Studentship.
