Work Experience

Infection, Immunity & Inflammation

The III Research & Teaching Department offers work experience twice a year (June and October) for students of 16 years and over who have completed their GCSEs. 

DUE TO COVID-19, ALL UCL SUMMER PLACEMENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED.

The next scheduled work experience week is: 26-29th October 2020.   

THE PLACEMENT:

We want to give students a varied week during the work experience placement at UCL GOS ICH so that they have a good understanding of what is involved in the scientific research field. As much as we would like to give visiting students as many hand-on activities as possible, we are limited in what they can physically do due to health and safety regulations. However, where they can get involved we'll do our best to accommodate it so activities can range from running gels, analysing FACS, looking at cells under a microscope, analysing genetic data, pipetting solutions, etc.  Students will also have the opportunity to attend a Departmental Seminar, take part in a Journal Club as well as other possible meetings. As we work closely with Great Ormond Street Hospital, some of the slots in the timetable will include sessions in the clinical labs at GOSH as well as in the research labs at ICH (Institute of Child Health).

HOW TO APPLY:

New applications are suspended at present. Those who have successfully applied for places will be offered spaces in the October scheme or placed on a waiting list. Please check this page for any updates.
