The School of Biological Sciences offers a work experience placement to students between the ages of 14 – 18 years old who would like to work within a science setting as Laboratory Technicians or Technical Support. Please note that our programme is not aimed at students wishing to become Doctors, Vets or working within the Forensic Science sector.
The placement will be based mainly in the School of Biology state-of-the-art teaching laboratories, although some aspects of research work may be included depending on availability of staff involved. Our focus of the week will be general laboratory activities and developing some field skills which may be dependent on the weather.
Each year there are places available on our one-week Summer (June/July) work experience programme that will be awarded by a competitive selection process.
