    Nothing beats hands-on experience. Putting theory into practice builds confidence and
    gets you work ready. So work placements are a valuable part of most of our Biological Sciences
    courses. We have excellent links to local and international companies to give you a wide
    range of placement opportunities. We also run the highly successful Getting Inside
    Scheme; this can give you an internship with a company over the summer for invaluable
    work experience.
