Work Experience

At MRC Harwell, we have a well established work experience programme enabling students to learn about the different types of careers in biomedical science.

Our work experience programme is a valuable opportunity for students to find out more about careers in biomedical science and gain an insight into life in laboratory research. Our work experience is one week long, unpaid, and consists of three days within our specialist facilities and two days spent shadowing a PhD student. Students will also be able to tour our animal facility the Mary Lyon Centre.
