RO aims to give you enhanced access to information and advice about accessing different professions
- National Student Conference: at the exhibition we have representatives from employee organisations to tell you more about their career opportunities.
- Ask the Expert: each month we feature a new expert on the ementoring site who is a current professional working in a specific career. You can read their profile about their job and ask them questions about their career.
Realising Opportunities is pleased to be partnering with the Nuffield Foundation to promote their research placements. The Nuffield Foundation offer up to 1000 research placements a year for students to work alongside professional scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians. Students in the first year of a post-16 science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) course are eligible to apply. Placements are available across the UK, in universities, commercial companies, voluntary organisations and research institutions. To ensure that students are not excluded on a financial basis travel costs are covered and some students may also be eligible for a weekly bursary payment. Any Realising Opportunities year 12 student who is interested in making an application should visit the Nuffield Foundation website.
Please note that application deadlines vary by region so a prompt enquiry would be advisable. Application deadlines can be found on the Nuffield Foundation website along with contact details for regional co-ordinators who are the first point of contact for application enquiries.
