Experience Postgrad Life Sciences

Enhancing diversity among life scientists of the future
Laboratory work
It is with regret that we have taken the decision to cancel the Experience Postgraduate Life sciences internship programme for Summer 2020 due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Visit our website again in the autumn for an update on the Summer 2021 programme.

The Graduate School of Biological Sciences, together with the sponsors of this scheme, is committed to widen participation in postgraduate studies at the University of Cambridge. Experience Postgrad Life Sciences offers paid 8-week research internships to 2nd year UK undergraduate students from underrepresented groups.

In Summer 2020, the internship programme will take place from Monday 6 July to Friday 28 August. Free accommodation will be provided in a College.

Interns will be invited to take part in additional events including training on how to apply for postgraduate courses and scientific lectures and seminars.

A variety of social activities will be provided during the programme.
