Jnetics on Campus
Jnetics on Campus – University Screening Week takes place every November and provides testing for UK-based students with at least ONE Jewish grandparent.
This year, Jnetics on Campus University Screening Week is taking place between 20-26th November 2023.
University Screening Week (USW) is a virtual programme. Students register online in advance and pre-book a screening appointment. They then receive a pack in the post with everything they need to complete the test, including a cheek swab kit, forms and information. During USW, students attend their screening appointment, which takes place via zoom with a trained Screening Advisor volunteer. The screening advisor helps the student to complete the forms and advises the student how to do the sample.
After the appointment, students post back the saliva swab to Jnetics, after which it is sent on to the lab. Students expect to see results within 20 weeks’ time.
Participation is free. The screening cost is fully subsidised by Jnetics through fundraising and the generosity of the community.
- Students are required to provide their university ID when they register
- Students who have already been tested for 9 Jewish genetic disorders through a previous University Screening Week or at school are not eligible to retest through University Screening Week this year. However they are welcome to sign up to The Jnetics Clinic where testing with Jnetics’ newer 47 disorder test is possible.
