Eligibility criteria

General eligibility

The Revolutions in Biomedicine summer programme welcomes applications from students from all over the world. There are no restrictions on nationality. If you are not a UK or EU national, you may need a visa to attend. For more detail, check our visa information page.  


Academic eligibility

The Revolutions in Biomedicine summer programme is suitable for students who are on or have recently completed an undergraduate or postgraduate degree with a bioscience component. In practice, this means that you will need to be able to demonstrate that you have passed at least one undergraduate module in a bioscience subject. As part of your application process, you will need to submit a transcript to date which we will use to assess your eligibility for the programme. If you are not able to access a transcript to date, or you are currently undertaking a bioscience module which will not appear on your transcript, we may be able to accept a reference from a member of academic staff who can vouch for your performance. If you're not sure if you satisfy our academic eligibility criteria, or believe that you may need to submit a reference instead of a transcript, please contact us.

This programme is only suitable for students who are 18 years or older and enrolled on or have completed an undergraduate programme. We are unable to accept students who are below the age of 18 or have not yet started their undergraduate education. If you are aged 15 to 17, you may be interested in the Imperial College London Global Summer School
