Science Futures is back! The Department of Applied Science welcomes you to our annual Science Futures fair taking place tomorrow (Wednesday 9th February 2020) online. This event brings together students and employers to discuss the diverse, wide range of roles available for life science graduates, internship opportunities, placements and more. Previously (pre-pandemic) Science Futures was held at UWE (see article) but similar to last year we will be online for 2022.
Not to worry, we have a great line up of employers engaging with our students on the virtual platform Handshake.
What to expect?
Science futures gives you (the student) the chance to ask questions, to learn about the types of roles on offer in different organisations and to ask as many burning questions that you may have about your career in the sciences or any other fields of interest. The attending organisations are sending delegates who understand what is like to be a student and are willing to provide ideas, suggestions and guidance on how you can develop your future plans and your career.
