UKAEA placements and work experience
We are passionate about inspiring young people and students to pursue a career in fusion energy. We offer summer placements, year 10+ work experience and a summer school!
Undergraduate and masters placements
Every year, we at UKAEA have many projects for students, both undergraduate and masters. These placements range from a few months to a year in industry projects, and provides the opportunity to join the Graduate Scheme post-degree.
When do the placements open?
If you’re interested in completing a short-term summer placement with us, our applications run annually and are available. Additionally, some Year in Industry placements are also available for applications online.
Year in Industry placements which are not advertised publicly, in addition to Masters placements, are generally set up in collaboration with university courses with which we have special partner arrangements.

South East Physics Network (SEPN) offers placements to those working in a physics discipline. The recruitment process is driven via the collaborating universities and will be advertised locally.
Do you, or someone you know, want to experience working in science, engineering, or a science community business support role before you decide on your future career? If so, UKAEA’s summer work experience programme may be perfect for you!
UKAEA’s Work Experience Programme invites students studying in academic years 10 and 11 to join us for a pre-set week of work experience during the summer.
Applications for this year’s work experience programme have now closed.
Details on how to apply to our Work Experience Programme 2024 will be added here in the Autumn 2023.

Graduate Mechatronics Engineer
Before Faiz was a graduate, he took part in a student placement with us at UKAEA in the very department that he works in now. After graduating he chose to return to our team, already safe in the knowledge that UKAEA was where he wanted to be.
