Work experience placements for Year 10 and 11 students

Applications are now open for the next Earth Sciences Work Experience Programme which will run 4-8th July 2022. Please complete this form to apply. We also ask for a teacher reference and a CV to be submitted.

The School of Earth Sciences actively supports and encourages work experience placements for Year 10 and 11 students. We run a one-week work experience programme with 12 places that will be awarded by a competitive selection process. Activities will include lectures and laboratory exercises on a range of Earth science topics and (usually) a fieldtrip to see some local geology of interest. Priority will be given to students who have a genuine interest in studying an Earth Science subject at University and those from widening participation backgrounds. A maximum of one candidate per school will be awarded a place.


For further information regarding the programme please contact Claudia Hildebrandt ( , Work Experience Co-ordinator, School of Earth Sciences.
