Year in industry

Industry-based laboratory work experience will be open to students completing the year in industry which will entail working in an industrial laboratory research environment.

The principal laboratory activities will take place in an industrial laboratory. The placement will normally begin following the second year. During their placement, students will have the opportunity to put into practice skills they have acquired during their first two years of the programme, as well as acquire new skills that would enhance their future employability. The School will support the students in the application process to attain their placement for those students who have elected to undertake the the year in industry option. However it is the responsibility of the student to secure the placement. Students will maintain contact with their personal tutors during their year in industry.

Placements will normally be in a pharmaceutical/drug discovery company or government research institute. Students may work in the UK or abroad for their placement.
