Work experience

If you’re a student in Year 10 or above and are thinking about studying on a medical or dental course at university, our work experience programme allows you a taster of just what life as a student at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry is like.

Join us for a week to sit in and observe our students in their learning environment, including the Clinical Skills Resource Centre, Simulated Dental Learning Environments and our Life Science Resource Centre. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the research laboratory and try out our specialist IT and e-learning resources.

Work experience placements are limited. Get in touch to find out more - email:
