17 and over
To help undergraduates continue their STEMM careers and gain experience in a variety of fields and disciplines, we offer a range of different opportunities for students over the age of 17.
Our increasingly popular annual Undergraduate Summer School is open to applicants from around the world. The chance to spend 8 weeks working on projects alongside our world-leading scientists, means this is always over-subscribed, but those who are selected receive the experience of a lifetime, as well as free accommodation and £200 per week to spend.
Many John Innes Centre laboratories welcome undergraduates over the summer period and our summer vacation bursaries provide an excellent opportunity to gain first hand experience in an internationally respected laboratory and are particularly useful for undergraduates who may be considering taking up a Masters or PhD studentship after graduating.
We also accept around 10 Nuffield Research Scholars each summer work alongside scientists, contribute to projects and learn about lab work and scientific research.
