Teachers and advisers

We run a number of projects and initiatives that help teachers and careers advisers encourage pupils to think about their futures in biology, medicine and health.

These initiatives include widening participation programmes to ensure we have a diverse student body, where equal opportunities are provided for everyone, regardless of their background.

Work experience

Work experience week - Monday, 1st - Friday, 5th July 2019

Students from Year 10 looking to complete a week of work experience are invited to join the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health for a full week of activities in July. 

This week will give students:

  • An introduction for Higher Education; working and studying at Manchester
  • A taster of laboratory science
  • Information about careers in science, medicine and healthcare

There will be a whole host of activities, workshops, tours, talks and projects that students will become involved in and each day is different, it’s set to be an extremely busy and fun week. 

Please contact for more information, and details on how to apply.

We also accommodate Year 12 pupils with work experience via Nuffield Research Placements.

University staff can accommodate a request from school or college pupils outside of these schemes and should contact for support and advice with this before committing to offering a place.

Discover Days

The University of Manchester's Discover Days are informative, interactive events for aspiring undergraduate students who are interested in certain subject areas, but may not know exactly which course to choose. They are ideal for Year 12 students, or for other people applying to university through UCAS and considering Manchester. We host the following three Discover Days: Midwifery, Psychology and Biosciences. For more information, visit the Discover Days page.
