Biology in Action returns this autumn! Five interactive and engaging sessions delivered by renowned scientists and communicators will inspire and motivate your students. A special session with hints and tips for revision and examination success will provide students with the tools to succeed. This is an unmissable and tremendously popular day, and we look forward to welcoming you and your students this spring.

“I don’t remember a better student conference – we thought every speaker was excellent – just the right level, all animated, engaging and well prepared.”
