Testimonials from participants on the 2023 programme:

‘I really enjoyed the academic taster sessions. I learnt lots of new things which were very interesting and also relevant to my A levels. They were also very interactive and I found it useful being able to ask questions.’

‘Thanks to your programme and activities, I understand how much value science holds in our lives.’

I learnt about different careers in STEM and why the people decide to pursue them. I saw the life of a university student at Bristol.

‘I enjoyed learning from all of the students, even if it wasn't of areas I was interested in – it made me want to continue to look into the subjects more, and expanded my knowledge of how research is conducted at university.’
