We do not offer undergraduate degree courses, but most Research Group Leaders will consider applications from penultimate or final year undergraduate students for summer placements.

To apply for a summer placement, first decide which research group you would like to join.  Then please submit by email, to the Research Group Leader, a two-page CV (including the contact details of two referees), a one-page covering letter and a transcript of any examination marks received so far.

Please do not send a general application to the department, as we cannot select a laboratory on your behalf.

If a Research Group Leader decides to host you, you will need to obtain funding to cover your internship.  For information about some sources of funding for undergraduate internships, please see:
