Our Summer School is an excellent introduction to studying at an international university.

Summer study allows you to:

  • Explore a particular topic in more depth
  • Experience teaching from world-class academic staff
  • Supplement your studies and gain international experience and credits at a world-class university.


Who are you? Do you know why you have the eye colour you do? In humans, which has evolved more quickly – the brain or sperm? Are you fascinated by genetics? From Mendel’s Peas to the sequencing of the Human Genome, explore how this field of biological science has led to the discovery of the genes that make us unique, as well as those that cause devastating diseases.

This course aims to describe the structure, organization and replication of DNA, present the properties of genes and their inheritance, and discuss the nature of mutations, genetic variation and gene mapping.

You will also learn about the nature of the genome projects and their applications, discuss the nature of human genetic disease – especially diagnostics and treatments – and reflect on the ethical implications of advances in genetics.

We provide training in the analysis of sequence data and patterns of inheritance, and enable you to appreciate the role of genetics in the study of many fields of biology.

Entry requirements
