Are you in year 12 and interested in applying for Biological Sciences at University of Cambridge or any other University?  If so, we would love to welcome you to our series of Biological Science masterclasses.  Each masterclass will include a lecture, a practical demonstration and data interpretation led by our scientists. Sessions are aimed at 16-18 year olds, building on and extending your A-level learning.  

Following this there will be the opportunity to virtually attend an expert panel Q&A covering applications, interviews and studying Biological Sciences.  Please only sign up for one session to allow as many people as possible to gain from this opportunity.  Likewise, if you are not applying in the next year then please join us next year to allow priority to those who will be applying in the next round of UCAS.
