Many thanks to Lucy Bently from The University of Liverpool who came in to college today to launch the Merseyside Young Life Scientists and Merseyside Young Psychologists Programme. Lower Sixth students who are interested in studying Life Sciences or Psychology at university attended the event to find out more.

The Programme offers successful applicants the opportunity to attend a series of events at the university as well as the chance to buddy up with a PhD student who will help them complete a research project and prepare a poster to present at a science event.

It is a fabulous opportunity for students to enhance their UCAS Personal Statement and is particularly relevant for any students who are completing the Extended Project Qualification.
