Outreach and Schools Liaison

The Faculty of Biological Sciences is committed to stimulating interest in, and sharing knowledge of, bioscience. Faculty staff and students take part in events on campus, in local schools and in the community to share the impact of their work.

Young people can visit the University to discover more about studying biological sciences at Leeds, and we ensure that our courses are accessible to all who can benefit, regardless of age or background. School teachers also have the opportunity to utilise our facilities and expertise to enhance their teaching, knowledge and understanding. These pages are specifically for biological sciences, but you can find out about our wider Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) information at the STEM@Leeds pages
