Career opportunities

The significant and relevant work experience gained during the year of industrial/professional experience makes graduates of this course especially attractive to employers. 95% of our 2015 graduates were in work or further study within six months of completing this course.

Many secure jobs as researchers working in universities, pharmaceutical and bioscience companies and institutes.

Some of our graduates progress into laboratory-based careers in clinical or technical roles which do not involve research.

The in-vivo training that these graduates have undertaken makes them especially attractive to pharmaceutical companies.
