Work experience at WMS

abstract lab picture

We strongly encourage our staff to offer work experience to pupils interested in learning about the various aspects of medical research. Many of our staff are also doctors at local hospitals and are therefore also available for clinical work experience.

Our staff offer experimental laboratory work experiences placements every summer for secondary school students 16 years and above. A range of short research projects in the areas of molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology are available in the biomedical research laboratories based at WMS.

For clinical work experiences, this will have to go through our partner NHS Trust. Information about clinical work experience can be found on the UHCW Trust website.

Please note, work experience placements for summer 2021 are subject to Government and University guidance and restrictions. We are keen to support placements where possible and encouraging prospective work experience students to register their interest as soon as possible.

Please contact our Work Experience lead at, telling us why you would like to do a research placement.

"A magic wand has been waved and he’s grown up this week...Thank you so much for the help to get him into an environment he is so obviously, even after four days, recognising as part of where he wants to be. Not many work experience placements can boast that result."
