Employer focused courses

We place a great emphasis on training biologists for real world positions. With this in mind, we incorporate significant practical content into all our courses. Additionally, in 3rd year, all our students participate in a 16 week work placement programme based in a relevant scientific industry or company, either locally or internationally. Consequently our graduates have a distinct advantage when applying for full time positions.
