Open days for prospective students

Open days and information sessions

CHSTM organises sessions at various times during the year to help you to find out more about taught Master’s or research study. CHSTM staff will talk about course structures, the application process, and funding, and you’ll also be able to talk to current and former students about course content and the wide range of career pathways available, from hands-on science communication to academic research.

Details of the next session will appear on this page when they are confirmed, but we're also happy to set up individual meetings with relevant staff at any time of the year: see Contact us for details.

We also have recordings of the presentations from the most recent sessions:
