2022 Programme

Make a difference and inspire the pioneers of the future

In 2022 we’re looking to work with amazing researchers and STEM professionals who can share their insights and expertise with disadvantaged students by hosting up to three young people for one or two week summer work placements.

Host students in summer 2022

It’s easy

Our experienced and friendly staff will provide you with all the training and guidance you need to become a fantastic host with us, and also boost your CV! The summer work placements will take place in July or August, according to your availability.

It’s safe

We shortlist and interview disadvantaged students before matching them to you based on their interests. All in-person work placements will be hosted in accordance with the latest Covid-19 guidance.

It will make a difference

Through just a small time commitment to share your knowledge and experience, these young people can gain the knowledge and confidence needed to pursue a career in STEM.

The Programme in 2022

The 2022 In2scienceUK Programme will connect students to volunteers from different fields within STEM over the summer between Year 12 and Year 13, the time when they are finalising their decisions about university or apprenticeships. Our students will gain access to exciting in-person and online opportunities including a one or two week work placement, online skills and employability workshops and in-person induction days.

The In2scienceUK team will work closely with hosts to develop and deliver an engaging placement, enabling students of all abilities to explore STEM beyond the classroom, develop key skills and boost their applications for further education. 

Throughout the summer we will also be running public engagement competitions, giving In2scienceUK students the chance to develop their skills in written and visual communication, have fun and win prizes!

To round off the programme, we will host in-person celebration events in key regions in recognition of the hard work and dedication from students and volunteers. Attendees from across the In2scienceUK community will have the opportunity to interact whilst we award certificates, competition prizes and reflect on outcomes of the summer programme.

Host Eligibility and Selection

We are looking for host applications from people with an interest in outreach and a passion for addressing the inequalities that exist within the STEM sector. Whether you’re an academic, PhD student, technician or other STEM professional, we want you to apply for our programme and share your experiences with underrepresented students and help to ensure they reach their full potential.

Where your place of work is located will affect your eligibility to host with us. For information about our current regions, as well as our selection process for hosts please see our FAQs.

I’m passionate about science and diversity, and supporting young people to fulfil their STEM potential is a great way to support both. I absolutely recommend In2scienceUK, it’s a great way to support the development of the UK’s next STEM generation”.
