Work experience

Our work experience scheme enables schoolchildren to gain their first taste of life in a laboratory and provides an excellent opportunity to discover more about a career in research. 

We have a highly competitive work experience scheme for 15–16 year olds in their final year of secondary school. This provides a valuable opportunity to gain experience in medical research and the biological sciences.
