The Medicine and Life Sciences stream aims to provide students with an insight into degrees and careers within medicine and the life sciences through a series of lectures and practical sessions.

The classroom-based programme is accompanied by hands-on sessions in our labs and workshops, where you will use real equipment and learn a range of relevant practical skills under the supervision of Imperial teaching staff and academic mentors.

In 2019, students enjoyed an interactive session at one of Imperial’s affiliated teaching hospitals, learning clinical skills from leading health professionals. They also spent a day within Imperial’s Faculty of Medicine, studying the physiology of the urinary system through case studies and practical experiments. The final two days of the stream were led by Imperial’s Department of Life Sciences, who exposed students to modern approaches in the identification and isolation of genes which are introduced into Genetically Modified Organisms to give them new artificial characteristics.

On the Medicine and Life Sciences stream, you will:

  • Conduct practical experiments, collect and analyse data
  • Learn real clinical skills at a teaching hospital
  • Encounter new concepts and systems in lecture-led teaching sessions
  • Work as part of a team to analyse case studies and construct a genogram
  • Develop your understanding of molecular biology theory and practise through a range of practical activities
