BioGrad Laboratory Skills Summer School at Liverpool Science Park
BioGrad & Liverpool Science Park are offering a 5-day summer school to provide AS and A-Level students with the chance to enter a real laboratory, meet real scientists and gain an insight into life as a research scientist.
The summer schools provide experience of different areas of scientific research to help students make an informed decision when selecting an undergraduate degree. The experience gained will support UCAS applications for science, medical and dental degree programmes and certificates of attendance will be provided on the final day.
The summer schools costs are £395 per student (£98.75 depost, with remainder due 30 days before course starts).
A maximum of 10 students are accepted on each course so scientists can spend time talking with students and answering questions. Students can book here independently through the website. Alternatively, schools can reserve a set number of places for their students on a particular course.
The course is designed and delivered by scientists from Pfizer, University of Oxford and Public Health England, to provide a fully rounded set of skills essential for Biology students and allow students to discover what studying and working in a laboratory is really like, before making the decision to apply for a science degree.
Liverpool Science Park is centrally located, next to Christ the King Cathedral on Mount Pleasant, and within walking distance of Central and Liverpool Lime Street Stations. Student accommodation is also available if required.
In addition to the summer schools there are a limited number of dates available in Oct – Dec 2016 where schools can book 8-10 places for their students and attend with (or without) their teachers. These are booked as bespoke courses (with or without accommodation) and teachers are advised to contact the BioGrad office to discuss their requirements.
