The Light Microscopy summer school is an annual, residential three-day course held at the University of York, covering the principles of light microscopy. Participants are also trained in practical issues surrounding light microscopy. After introductory presentations, the course is taught predominantly through hands-on practical sessions.

The EM Summer School aims to provide a basic training in both the theory and practice of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The course covers imaging, diffraction and chemical microanalysis as well as the highly important area of sample preparation. 

This two-day annual confocal course utilises many different sample types and fluorescent probes (DNA stains, classic antibody labels and fluorescent proteins) which are chosen to best demonstrate particular problems and techniques.
Focus is always on the techniques they enable and the problems they generate, which will be applicable to any sample types. The two days consist of short tutorials followed by hands-on practice.

This FACS course is aimed at both life science and clinical science fields, with the common fundamentals covered on days one and two. The course then splits into life science and clinical orientated modules, from practical demonstrations to lectures highlighting not just the applications, but best practice as well.
