Our outreach with schools
The College of Medicine and Health offers a range of activities for students who want to find out more about medical and health related sciences.
These include in-school and on-campus visits, shadowing, and workshops.
We offer appropriate activities for students from year 10 to year 13 to allow them to make an informed choice about whether this area of science could be the career for them.
We offer activities based on all of our courses, including Medicine, Nursing, Medical Sciences, Neuroscience and Medical Imaging. To find out more, visit our undergraduate pages.
We are always looking to develop new sessions and are happy to discuss what we can provide to meet the needs of your students.
Full information about our available activities can be found on our Teachers and Advisors webpage.
