Studying at Cambridge



Each year, the Cavendish offers several work experience placements for local students aged 16 or older.

Applications for work experience places for 2018 are now CLOSED. The deadline for submission was the 28th FEBRUARY 2018.

To Apply

There are a small number of opportunities for work experience at the Cavendish laboratory. These are restricted to students who are sixteen years of age or older at the time of placement and preference is given to those who live locally as we do not find accommodation for students.

Students interested in applying for a work experience place for June - September 2018 should prepare by:

a) Writing a CV 

b) Asking parents/guardians and a teacher to sign our consent form

c) Joining our Isaac Physics Work Experience Group and attempt as many physics questions as possible on Isaac.

d) Finally having prepared, they should fill in our online application form where they will be asked to upload their CV and download and print the consent form for signing and return the form to:

Please note:

  • Places will be allocated at our discretion based on a student's suitability for the projects on offer, effort on Isaac Physics and availability.
  • Successful applicants for 2018 will be notified on 31st March 2018.
