Visiting you

Students and other learners can engage in hands-on, practical demonstrations and activities run by members of University staff.

Our workshops can help enrich school practical work and can be tailored to fit the curriculum and age range and abilities of the students. We can also provide interactive talks from scientists about a wide range of topics within medical sciences, including research and career paths. These can be arranged for a variety of settings, from assemblies to inspirational vocational sessions for small groups.

Science Speaker Programme

The University of Bristol’s Faculty of Biomedical Sciences carries out cutting edge research into the molecular causes of human disease and we are pleased to be able to offer expert researchers to give science talks in your school. Our programme of talks is aimed at students in Years 11, 12 and 13 and will give an insight into some of the exciting research based at the University of Bristol. There is a choice of talks on a range of current and highly relevant topics so please contact us if you would like to arrange a visit.

Inspire Roadshows for secondary schools

These are exciting, interactive, enquiry based sessions that we run within the school classroom.  They are designed to help student be inspired by and understand different topics such as health, biology, molecular medicine or biochemistry.  They bring together a small amount of theory with a large amount of hands on activities focused on a range of topics from Physiological functions (cardiovascular, respiratory, auditory), to DNA extraction or Gel Electrophoresis.  They are available for all year groups within the school and last between 45-60mins.   They will be delivered by UG and PG students so give your students the chance to meet and talk to current students about any aspect of university life.  Depending on the age group, then we can also add in relevant information about applying for Biomedical or Health Science courses and the general UCAS process.
