Every academic year (usually in the Spring term) we run an applied biology course for sixth-form students. Students are usually (but certainly not always) aiming for careers in Biosciences, Medicine or Veterinary Medicine; and must have a passion for the natural world and a desire to see their A-Level biology courses come alive.
Previous year's sessions have included: Bacteriology, Zoo Life; Conservation or welfare, Haematology, Evolutionary Biology, Osteology, Anatomy, Pharmacology, Exercise Physiology, Suturing, and Conservation Ethics. Details of the course are sent to local schools during the previous term, but interested students can also apply directly to the Practice. If you are studying A-Level biology and would like to be considered for this year's course, please complete an application form as soon as possible. Places are limited and successful applicants need to will demonstrate a good academic standard as
well as enthusiasm. Sessions will revolve around handling real specimens and informal directed discovery.
The 2017 Biology: Applied course will be running on a Tuesday evening from 7th February - 28th March, 4.30-6.30pm. A nominal charge of £1 per student per session will be charged to help cover our costs. Students who attend regularly will be invited on a field trip at the end of the course.
