First-year students should fill in the EASTBIO Training Plan and Record form with their choice of Masterclasses and other core training by Monday the 16 October 2017 via the online link found here. You should update this (editable) form frequently throughout the first year with EASTBIO or optional non-EASTBIO training. EASTBIO monitors this information against training attendance records, issues relevant reminders and notifications. At the end of the first year, each student receives a notification from EASTBIO regarding their fulfilment of the EASTBIO Training Requirement (please consult the Student Handbook).

Second- and third-year students are sent yearly information and reminders about their Training Plan & Record requirements by the EASTBIO Administrator in due time.

For more details about EASTBIO training, please consult the Student Handbook 2016-2017. A copy of the updated Handbook is handed out at Induction Day and you can check here for past handbooks.
