Biology taster session
This taster session gives you an insight into studying Biology at university.
Explore our evolving planet: Tropical rainforest ecosystems to COVID-19
A free virtual taster session for Y13 students.
Please note this is a repeat session to the one held in June. You are welcome to attend again, however, please be aware the content of the session will be the same.
The following Taster session is aimed at any Y13 pupils who have not yet submitted their UCAS form, and are therefore not holding any offers with the University of Sheffield. Any pupils who are offer holders and book onto a taster session will instead be invited to join us for our Virtual Applicant days from December - April.
When: Wednesday 21 October, 4:00pm - 5:45pm
50 places available
Year 13, A Level, BTEC
