Biological Sciences Summer School

Each year the Faculty of Biological Sciences hosts a summer school for year 12 students who are interested in exploring biological sciences at the next level and finding out where it can lead.

As well as taking part in lectures, students will be involved in a project of their preference, getting to experience what researching is really like from start to finish. Students will have the opportunity to meet academics and current students from the Faculty of Biological Sciences and take part in a question and answer session to find out more about our undergraduate degree programmes and future career pathways. 

The Summer School is also designed to enhance your UCAS application, with an opportunity to speak to our admissions staff, and get advice on the best way to use what you have learnt at the event in your personal statement.

The date of the Biological Sciences Summer School will be announced at the start of 2023


The application form will be made available in January.
