Resources for teachers

We have several resources for teachers and careers advisers who want to encourage school pupils to take an interest in higher education and careers in biology, medicine and health.

Fly Facility

Fruit flies, or drosophila, can be used as a modern teaching tool for science teachers for lessons on virtually every biology specification of the curriculum, using simple experiments or demonstrations. Find out more and discover resources on the Fly Facilty website and droso4schools site.


The #IMADEIT project offers a resource to encourage bright students into studying medicine, no matter what their background.

We asked medical students and doctors from non-traditional backgrounds to give some helpful advice. There are a growing number of videos for potential medics on the #IMADEIT YouTube channel.

We have also created two videos specifically for teachers to explain how you can encourage and advise students with a potential to study medicine:

Learning with Lucy

Learning with Lucy is a global campaign from the University's Manchester Museum to educate primary school children about the critically endangered lemur leaf frog, which is one of the rarest frogs in the world.

The campaign includes resources such as videos and an activity booklet to help children learn about conservation. Links to these resources can be found on the Learning with Lucy page.

Museum of Medicine and Health

The Museum, which is based in the Faculty, is able to lend historical medical objects to local schools for GCSE students to learn about medicine through the ages.
