Each year, a number of students undertake research projects in the Department over the summer.
- See a list of project titles available in summer 2017, together with demonstrators/supervisors and project outlines.
Students interested in such projects should list up to three of them, in ranked order of preference. The funding for these placements may come from one of the EPSRC summer studentships allocated to the Department or from elsewhere. Students may wish to contact supervisors of projects in which they have an interest, to check on exactly how they are likely to work, from both financial and other points of view. In any event, it will be made clear how they will be funded and administered once applications for projects have been approved.
As with most summer placements, research projects in the Department usually last about 8 weeks and the students receive bursaries of around £200 per week. Normally, students stay in their Colleges and the cost of this accommodation is covered from the bursary.
