Read what our recent Non-Russell Group scholarship winner, Lucia, had to say about her experience of the online summer school:
"I believe the online summer school provided an interactive and insightful learning experience. I gained a wide scope of knowledge from keystone lectures delivered by world leading scientists, which involved topics which were not covered in my university course. The programme gave me the chance to meet and collaborate with many inspiring academics and talented future scientists.
Collaborating with other students in break out rooms helped me gain confidence developing ideas in a team.
The programme also helped me view the pandemic from multiple different perspectives and not only highlighted how interdisciplinary the topic of COVID is, but also the need for researchers from various different fields to work together to help solve the implications of the pandemic."
