Enhancing diversity among life scientists of the future
Amgen Scholars Cohort - Lecture theatre - Cambridge University

When you consider applying for postgraduate courses, laboratory experience and references play a key part. The aims of the Experience Postgrad Life Sciences internship programme are to:

  • Equip undergraduate students with a range of research skills
  • Give interns the opportunity to engage with inspiring┬áresearch staff and students
  • Expose interns to what postgraduate study involves
  • Prepare interns for postgraduate study applications
  • Provide occasions to meet other prospective postgraduate students

This is a unique opportunity to interact with both postgraduate students and academics.

Above all, this programme aims at increasing the diversity of postgraduate students, by giving research experience opportunities to underrepresented and disadvantaged groups of students. Check the eligibility criteria for more information.


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.
