The University of East London is very excited to announce our Bioscience and Chemistry Your Future Summer School Challenge 2021. You will be challenged to work to an industry led brief with workshops and panels from our expert academics, outreach team and industry professionals

Register your place online. The event will be on campus subject to Covid-19 guidance.

The Your Future Summer School Challenge 2021 is open to students aged 16-19 who are in Year 12/FE1/Level 3 and are considering applying to university in the 2021/22 academic year.

“How Bioscientists investigate (and help solve) clinical problems”

Join our Bioscience and Chemistry Summer School Challenge to get different opportunities to discover the main diagnostic tests used to investigate diseases (including Covid-19), analysis of breathing capacity of patients with respiratory conditions, learn about research tools used by scientist to further understanding of how pathogens work, discussions about the efficacy of current Covid-19 vaccines, possible development of new (or re-purposing of existing) drugs, and designing altogether new drugs in order to deal with different variants of SARS-CoV-2.

The UEL Your Future Summer Challenge 2021 is an amazing opportunity for you to:

  • Gain more knowledge about your chosen field and the career opportunities it opens up
  • Develop invaluable transferable skills, which are important for succeeding in higher education and beyond
  • Respond to an industry brief, getting hands on experience of their subject - a perfect addition to any personal statement!
  • Access dedicated career planning workshops with careers coaches and industry professionals
  • Have any questions about university and careers answered by the experts!

Who can apply:

The summer schools are open to students who are both in Year 12/FE1 and are 16-19 years old.

Everyone is welcome at the University of East London. At our summer school we try to give priority to students:

  • with little or no family history of going to university
  • who come from other groups that are underrepresented in higher education
