This Monday, we welcomed our first-ever cohort of Aspiring Scientists Training Programme (ASTP) students.

The ASTP is designed to give A-level biology students a chance to experience what a career as a biologist entails, from bespoke workshops with experts in the sector to networking opportunities with scientists and the chance to explore life at a world-renowned research university.

For one week, students will:
- Spend afternoons in a lab each day, learning and practising research techniques
- Attend four bespoke, interactive workshops with experts
- Research a scientific topic or technique and create and deliver a presentation to peers and researchers
- Meet and network with PhD students and other scientists to talk to them about their jobs and get advice about careers and educational opportunities
- Explore Cambridge University, with the opportunity to ask questions and get advice from staff and students
