PIPS Opportunities

Contact your local Training Manager for all the latest information regarding possible PIPS host organisations and to discuss how to arrange a placement with a host organisation of your choosing. Many of our students arrange their own PIPS based on their personal preferences, but there are also ‘offered’ PIPS from established host organisations.

There are a wide variety of PIPS opportunities which are brought to our attention and these are circulated to eligible students as they arise.  Please check your email for PIPS opportunities and follow the enclosed application instructions, as these differ for each opportunity.

There are also organised PIPS schemes, more details can be found below:


Up to 8 internships are available at the BBSRC throughout the year.  Find out more here:


A number of placements will be available on an annual basis at our partner, the Food & Environment Research Agency (Fera) at Sand Hutton, York.  Each year, details of Fera PIPS will be made available at the Induction and Training Day at Fera in November. In the meantime, if you would like to pursue a placement at Fera then please get in touch with Clare Green.
