The University of Southampton
Institute for Life Sciences


The University has an extensive outreach programme which is central to our commitment to increasing access to Higher Education.

The University’s Learn with US programme is designed to promote Higher Education across the breadth of subjects at the University, through targeted interactions with pupils between ages 12 and 18. Other initiatives include the Ask the Expert and TEAtime lecture series, both of which provide interactive lectures and workshops with research-active academic staff.

Large scale events include our Southampton Science and Engineering Festival and a notable achievement at the intersection of research and outreach is our pioneering LifeLab, which promotes health literacy through context-specific learning outside the classroom including CPD sessions for teachers, teaching material development and children’s’ visits to the University and Hospital.

Disseminating Southampton's nucleic acid research to the wider community supports the BBSRC Excellence with Impact aims.  The FioNA programme has enriched these existing activities through collaborations with the South Wiltshire University Technical College summer schools; an arts based project with the Artist in Residence at the University’s Faculty of Medicine; creating and touring a DNA in Childhood Diseases engagement activity with the Bringing Research to Life roadshow; and seminars for the FioNA community at Southampton.
