WORD FROM OUR ALUMNI
Here is what some of our participants had to say:
“The ‘meet a scientist’ sessions were great! You don’t get many opportunities as a student to just have a chat with some scientists!”
“I gained massive amounts of advice for my future.”
“The whole experience has made me want to become a research scientist even more than I did before.”
HOW TO APPLY?
Applications for the 2023 programme are now open and will close on the 17th February.
