Summer Studentships in Medical Education
The Centre for Medical Education provides a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to participate in education research and development projects during the summer months. Each participant will be assigned to a project supervisor. The projects will run for up to eight weeks between June and August and you will work Monday to Friday on a full-time basis.
Students currently enrolled for Medicine in years 1, 2 and 3 are eligible to apply (priority may need to be given to second and third year students if an unusually large number of applications are received). Each summer studentship typically pays a stipend of £150 per week.
Students from all Universities are welcome to apply.
