Study Biotechnology/Genetics with Oxford Summer Courses

Biotechnology/Genetics Summer School

Has the first person who’ll live to 1000 already been born? Stemming from the basics of biological science, the disciplines of Biotechnology and Genetics have become pillars of modern technological advancement and our protest against our natural limitations. Huge breakthroughs in medicine, pharmacology and agriculture that mark our times can be attributed to their study; furthering our understanding of advanced molecular biology and genetics while giving birth to ever more focused fields of study such as Forensic Biotechnology and Bioremediation. The goal of this course is to establish the foundations for further study of these flourishing disciplines; we will also consider both their value to us as a modern society and the ethical questions that they raise.

At Oxford Summer Courses we are committed to the best academic experiences and to the personalised learning that has made Oxford a global academic force. So while all of our tutors are at the top of their fields depending on your age you'll be taught in slightly different ways. We use small group seminars to ensure that you get greater attention than you could elsewhere. On top of that if you're aged 16-17 or 18-24 then you'll receive weekly tutorials from leading academics mirroring the teaching method that makes Oxford a world-renowned university.

  • 2 and 4 week courses available
  • Cambridge University accommodation
  • tutorials & group seminars
  • Breakfast and dinner included
The Biotechnology/ Genetics summer course for 18-24 year olds is taught through four seminars and one supervision study per week. During the weekly supervision study, students will produce an essay which puts what is learned in seminars into action, and expert staff will give you comprehensive feedback on your arguments and writing style.

This course provides a unique glimpse into the underlying scientific principles of both Biotechnology and Genetics while also discussing the many applications that they have in our everyday life. Our course is designed in a way that unites theory and practice; providing students the opportunity to deepen their theoretical understanding of biotechnology/genetics as well as apply their knowledge in on-site laboratories and bioinformatics labs.
