International Internship Programme

2020 Scheme cancelled due to COVID-19

It is with deep regret that the Life Sciences Summer School Programme has been cancelled for 2020, regrettably we will not be offering any studentships this year. Our research laboratories are effectively closed with no confirmed reopening date which presents difficulties in offering summer studentships. 

If you have already applied you should now have received communication, if you have any questions please email

We realise that this will be deeply disappointing and would encourage you, if eligible, to apply for the 2021 scheme. We wish you all well in these difficult times and thank you for your interest in our scheme.
