About the scheme
The SEPnet Summer Internship Scheme will enable Physics students gain new skills and unrivalled insight into the world of work. The internships take place over the summer holiday period, in either a commercial company or research institution and last for 8 weeks.
Students have enjoyed placements with QinetiQ, the National Physical Laboratory, Symetrica, the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, the Met Office and many other employers.
Combining industry and insight
As well as working in industry, you can undertake research work in a SEPnet university (one you are not a student at), the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and other research institutions. In the winter term SEPnet holds a Students’ Expo in London. Sharing a poster session and giving a short presentation about your placement provides a valuable opportunity to hone your presentation and communication skills.
Eligibility and applications
The scheme is open to physics undergraduates in Year 2 BSc/MSci/MPhys programmes and Year 3 MPhys/MSci programmes at Herts, Kent, Queen Mary, Royal Holloway, Southampton and Sussex. At Queen Mary, Year 1 students are included with permission from the Head of Department.
