Nottingham Summer Engineering Research Programme

Having the opportunity to work with high achieving students can be a very rewarding experience for academic members of staff. 

NSERP provides the chance for any member of staff to supervise a student, giving post-doctoral researchers an excellent opportunity to obtain supervisory experience and to improve their CV. 

NSERP projects can also be a platform for academics to employ a student to 'test an idea' for a future proposal and offers students a way to experience a career in research.

Supervisors 466



Each year, we ask academic staff at the University to submit research proposals to the programme. These will be requested via email around October. The proposals will then be shared with eligible, shortlisted students to view and pick the projects they are most interested in. 

If you would like to hold interviews for your students, this can be arranged. 

If you have any questions about the programme, please get in touch
