NIHR Nottingham BRC student experience

A studentship at NIHR Nottingham BRC provides more than a further step in education:  our student culture embodies a level of professionalism in which you become active members of the team of experienced researchers. Students are given opportunities for development through University of Nottingham and NIHR training schemes. You are also supported to become active members of the larger research community by forming collaborations with external researchers, both nationally and internationally, leading to exciting presentation and travel opportunities.

Working in a translational unit with close links to Nottingham Paediatric and Adult Audiology services, your learning takes place in a working environment which provides you with the unique opportunity to interact with patients and public through both research and public engagement.

The appreciation given to the students’ role within the unit will help you gain confidence in your own expertise, while the opportunities to develop your skills will enable you to become true translational researchers for the future.
