Research for undergraduates during the summer?? I am studying physics with medical physics in the UK and for the last 3 months I am looking for summer research internships for undergraduates but all I found are in the US and all of them ask for US citizens or permanent residence.(most of them are part of the REU program) Is there anything similar for EU citizens in the EU? I am particularly interested in nanotech and physics related to medicine. PS. Is it better for a fresher to spent the first summer studying alone or working on a research project?
