Imperial College London: Year 12 Work Experience Programme

  • Crimson Education
  • United Kingdom
Multiple Research Opportunity Skill Building Summer Program


This non-residential programme aims to provide participants with an insight into the exciting world of study and research that we are proud of here at Imperial College London. Participants can apply to one of the following departments:

Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Life Sciences
National Heart and Lung Institute
During the five day programme participants will get an insight into studying their chosen subject at Imperial College London and be introduced to current research being conducted within their chosen department as well as meeting the researchers involved. They will have access to research and teaching laboratories, workshops and specialist technical suites.

Please note that each department runs their own timetable and the content of each stream varies.

As well as experiencing the world of academic research, students will also be given talks relevant to applying to university covering topics such as writing effective personal statements and interview skills. Students will also meet undergraduate students studying within their department of choice.

At the end of the week there will be an academic-style conference where students will work in small groups to present a poster and short oral presentation about their time on the programme to their peers, leaders and invited guests.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic Y12 Work Experience Programme has been cancelled in its on-campus advertised format and instead we are developing an online version of the programme. Selection for the new online version of the programme is currently taking place.
