Work Experience

School of Life Sciences offers unpaid laboratory and non-laboratory work experience placements to those aged 16-18.


Students will be in a professional work environment and working with staff members on their
planned work experience programme, with some programme tasks and outcomes that may support
the research and administration of School of Life Sciences.

Work experience placements are offered at the discretion of academics within the department.

How to apply

Please apply online. Applicants will be informed of the outcome by email once a decision has been made.

We are not able to offer lab-based work experience between 4 May and 12 June 2020.

Alternatives to work experience placements

We cannot guarantee a placement for work experience. You may also be interested in our laboratory experience days. We also contribute to the University Widening Participation and Outreach.

Information for staff about hosting work experience placements in SLS is available on the SLS intranet.
