Frontiers in Human Health Summer School

The Frontiers in Human Health Summer School will provide you with an understanding of some of the world's major health challenges and the research approaches used to address them in fields including global health, infection and immunity, genomic medicine, translational medicine and population health.

With a strong emphasis on research-informed teaching, this summer school will provide you with an opportunity to gain insight into multiple aspects of the research experience by learning face-to-face and first-hand from researchers and undertaking their own short, structured laboratory research project.

Students are expected to have passed at least one degree-level biology module, and international students are required to have an overall IELTS score of at least 6.5 (with a minimum of 6.5 in writing).
