Workshops for sixth formers
There is limited opportunity for sixth-formers to visit the University of Leicester and take part in biological workshops. Currently we are offering sessions on Electron Microscopy, Modern Genetic Techniques (contact Cas Kramer) and Human Physiology (contact Dr John Scott). These workshops can be tailored to your requirements, but usually last a day or half a day and can include hands-on practical work and lectures.
