Are you a keen biology or chemistry student? Do you want to continue studying these subjects and use them to help others? Would you like to work in the healthcare industry but know you don't want to study medicine? 

This subject taster day is designed to showcase the wide range of degrees and careers available to students with Biology and Chemistry A levels, or the eqivalent. 

You will attend laboratory sessions and workshops covering a range of disciplines, including Genetics, Chemistry, Pharmacy and Food Science. These activities will help you develop practical skills and give you an insight into what undergraduate level study in these disciplines might be like. 

A careers session, where you meet science graduates, will give you the chance to discover more about the possible ranges of careers available to you.
