Work experience

We aim to inspire the next generation of scientists by offering opportunities for young people to find out about research careers.

Our work experience placements for high school students provide hands-on experience of research as well as opportunities to talk to our scientists about their own career paths and the ethical, social and economic implications of their work.

Our researchers also offer a limited number of summer research placements for students already on university undergradute courses.

Please note that work experience placements for school pupils at The Roslin Institute are only available to pupils aged 16 and over via our two placement programmes that run during the school summer break. We are not able to accept 'ad hoc' applications for placements throughout the year.
