Work opportunities

We offer a number of opportunities for students to experience work in the Department:

SURE Summer Programme

SURE is a six-week summer programme which supports up to six undergraduate students from UK universities to undertake research within the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Space Research Centre at the University of Leicester. A range of projects are available in the fields of astrophysics, space science, and condensed matter physics.

Space Research Centre Undergraduate Work Placements

The Space Research Centre (SRC) is committed to ensuring that its work benefits emerging talent from science and engineering. The mechanical group within the SRC has established an internship programme which allows students to work on some of the most high profile space missions being run today.
