Study Tour - Bioscience
The aim of this project is to provide a quality careers educational experience to students in the School of Biological Sciences who have an expressed interested in working in the Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical industries (primarily students registered for undergraduate degrees in Biochemistry, Microbiology and Biological Sciences; there may be some interest from students studying the MSc in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology).
These sectors in Northern Ireland are small and one of the key aims of the project is to expose our students to a range of GB based companies working in these areas and to develop links with employers outside of Northern Ireland.
The School has an established work placement programme currently in operation with an increasing number of students interested in placement opportunities in this area. With this increasing student demand there is a requirement to establish placement opportunities outside of NI, and to raise student’s expectations and ambitions to work in this sector.
It is anticipated that the 2017 Biosciences Workplace Study Tour will take place from 7th - 9th June 2017.
