BioGrad is the laboratory and clinical training centre that attracts elite science and medical students from all over the world.
They specialise in offering REAL WORLD laboratory and clinical skills that range from beginner to advanced level courses. You can select the level that suits your needs and build a bespoke skill set of practical skills from the courses available.
The BioGrad ‘mission’ is very simple:
REAL SCIENTISTS – They only employ scientists and clinicians that are actually working or publishing in the area in which they teach. Each scientist is an expert in their field and all are highly experienced professionals with a wealth of knowledge.
REAL LABS – They don’t teach in a school laboratory, or in large groups with minimal supervision. BioGrad teach in groups of 4-10 students in a world class research laboratory at Liverpool Science Park to provide the best possible experience.
REAL EXPERIENCE – They don’t teach ‘text book science’, most of their students want REAL experience and if it’s in a text book it’s probably taken a few years to get there. Their scientists teach the techniques they use in their own research, allowing students to perform every aspect of the experiment including preparation, planning, performance, waste disposal and analysis so that they can repeat their new skills when they get back to their own lab or when they apply for a new job.
To give the best possible experience BioGrad have banned lectures. If you want the scientific theory you can get it from a book, school, university or on-line. BioGrad believe that if students are paying for laboratory training then that is exactly what they should receive. When you first arrive, you will receive a quick introduction to the topic however you will have your stethoscope or pipette in hand before you know it, and you will learn a wealth of knowledge in a completely ‘hands on’ environment.
