Virtual Placement Programme

Welcome to the In2scienceUK Virtual Placement Programme!

As physical placements can’t be carried out this year, we have built a virtual placement platform, which will go live this summer!

This prestigious In2scienceUK virtual placement programme will connect you to experts from different fields within science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) who will share with you their work, insights, and tips for success! 

Our exciting programme will enable you to connect with other like-minded young people and learn for yourselves what daily life looks like in different professions, while being supported through virtual means to develop key employability skills, undertake your own research and write successful UCAS and apprenticeship applications.

Keep an eye on this page as we will regularly update you with more infomration about the virtual placement programme, including launch dates.

Through the online programme you will:

  • Boost your employability skills and confidence through expert-led training.
  • Gain professional support to produce high-quality university and apprenticeship applications.
  • Be at the heart of cutting edge research and complete the prestigious British Science Association CREST Award for free.
  • Virtually meet and chat to a top scientist, engineer, researcher or programmer.

The In2scienceUK programme will enable you not only to gain an insight into high-level research but enable you to stand out in your university and apprenticeship applications with the help of some of the UK’s leading scientists, engineers and researchers.

We will also be hosting competitions this year, so there will be plenty of opportunities to show off your skills and win some fantastic prizes!

How Will Interviews Take Place?

If you have already been selected for an interview, congratulations! 

Interviews will not be held in person this year. All interviews are taking place via WhatsApp videocall, or via phone if this isn’t possible for you. You will receive an email outlining all the details of the interview and how to book your interview slot.

If you have not received an interview offer yet, first make sure to check your spam. If you still don’t have an email, please don’t worry. We will be conducting the interviews in several rounds this year so please be patient with us.
