Experience Postgrad Life Sciences

Enhancing diversity among life scientists of the future
Laboratory work

The Postgraduate School of Life Sciences, together with the sponsors of this scheme, are committed to widening 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 2021, the internship programme will take place from 5 July to 27 August 2021. 

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.


Whilst the programme is designed as a residential event, should Covid-19 government guidelines prevent this, we reserve the right to amend the programme to a blended or online programme instead. Details concerning how this will affect the programme will be added to this website, if this becomes necessary.
