Duration: 2 weeks
Study pathway/opportunity for further study: BSc Applied Biomedical Science; BSc Applied Bioscience; BSc Applied Bioscience with Forensic Investigation; BSc Biomedical Science
Credit bearing: No
Included: Accommodation, Tuition, Excursions and Social Activities
Visas: If you are from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland, you can apply for a short-term study visa. Make sure you check the immigration requirements before applying (visit www.gov.uk/study-visit-visa for more details). You will receive a confirmation of booking and you should carry this confirmation with you when travelling. You can apply for a visa up to three months before your date of travel to the UK. You should get a decision on your visa within three weeks. You will need to attach an offer letter to your visa application. The offer letter is a ‘Booking Complete’ email, which is sent to you once you have booked and made full payment for the Summer School.
The Biotechnology and Biomedicine Summer School will supplement existing knowledge of students with valuable practical and applied training, and allow in depth discussions on research with academics who are leading experts in their area. This two-week programme combines lectures with cutting edge research skills and expertise in an ever-growing and increasingly important scientific discipline. It will prepare candidates for senior years and enhance the appeal of candidates to potential employers and graduate schools. It will also allow candidates to make lasting connections with students from around the world, studying a range of subjects but sharing their enthusiasm for biomedicine and biotechnology. International study will enable you to gain a deeper understanding of another culture, make lifelong friends from a wide variety of backgrounds and benefit from globally-renowned academic excellence.
The Summer School aims to improve the understanding and practical skills of candidates in biotechnology and biomedicine. Students will participate in a funded research project to produce therapeutic recombinant proteins with the potential to target specific diseases.
Students will gain the satisfaction of generating a bioactive protein from first principles. You will be given guidance on giving presentations and preparing scientific posters during the Summer School, and opportunities to develop your communication skills.
