Professional Practice in Life and Environmental Sciences

The BIG question - what do you want to do as a career?

Professional Practice gives you the opportunity to try different potential career paths, make valuable contacts and begin to establish your professional network.

Not only will you have experience to add to your CV, your work placement supervisor could be a referee for when you do apply for your future job.
