Imperial College London has designed the Revolutions in Biomedicine summer school with your learning and social experience at heart. Based on a line-up of leading researchers, our intense academic programme will allow you to learn about the past, present and future state of biomedical sciences such as immunology, global health or cancer and reproductive biology.

Lectures will be complemented by group work, keynote talks and career perspective sessions. In addition, you will have the fabulous opportunity to experience real bench work during our week long mini-research project. This is a unique opportunity for you to be in control of your experimental design, taking full ownership of your practical work.

Finally, in collaboration with Imperial Business School, we have put together an exciting ‘Summer in London’ social programme which will allow you to discover our capital and its surroundings like you've never seen them before! Let the world's second highest rated university be your perfect environment to learn lifelong skills.
