DUE TO COVID-19, ALL ONSITE UCL WORK EXPERIENCE PLACEMENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED.

Further Information will be announced on this page later this year.

 

Concerning the virtual work experience programme that took place 26-29 October 2020, please find below some of the feedback received:

 “Also, thank you for organising this programme, I have loved every second and it has really helped me decide what I want to do when I grow up. Everyone was so friendly and the topics were so broad and gave a real feel of working in a laboratory without even being there!! ....I have learnt so so much.”

 “Thank you so much for organising this brilliant and informative week! I enjoyed every minute of it and feel lucky to have gained so much knowledge and experience. I came into this unsure of what degree I wanted to take or what path I wanted to follow, ...  and it has helped to confirm my realisation that I would like to do a Biological Sciences undergraduate course.”

 “Thank you so much for organising this work experience, I've found it incredibly enjoyable and informative in helping me decide what career I may like to do in the future. Before this week, I was concerned that a virtual placement would not be that good, but I was proved very wrong! Also, thank you to all the speakers who took the time to give presentations, prepare PowerPoints and answer all our questions. It's been a great experience. “
