Each year, first-year students join Dr Caroline Pope, our Doctoral Training and Industry Engagement Manager, to learn more about the EASTBIO placements, discuss possibilities and options, as well as examples from actual placements. The event includes an introduction by Dr Pope and short 10 minute-long presentations by EASTBIO students who have already completed their placements and have volunteered to speak to first-year students who consider options and set about to start planning their own placements.
