Advertised on their website https://www.gwct.org.uk/about/student-opportunities/undergraduates/ . Closing date is 7th January.
Applicants need to send the named contact on the advert the following:
1. CV detailing A levels and GCSEs – results and subjects; as well as any graded results at University that the students have up to the date they send us their CV. Include information on any paid or volunteer activities to show both interest in science and responsibility to job or volunteer commitments.
2. Covering letter (describe what they want out of the placement and what skills they bring to it – this needs to give us some idea of why they should stand out from the crowd – we really use this to select interviewees).
3. References from a lecturer or tutor sent to the contact person on the advert directly. Ensure these reach the appropriate contact person by the 7th of January in order to ensure they are considered when we select candidates for interview.
N.B. Many staff are likely to be on holiday until 7th January, so please contact them before the end of term.
These are opportunities for 2nd year students, to take a sandwich year before their 3rd year. We have had several successful Southampton student applications, including a student currently on placement with them and a finalist who recently returned from placement.
