“I found this talk incredibly interesting. I was already aware that some graduates went on to further study and research after the BSc., but I did not know very much about what that actually involved or what the career path would be like. After this talk I have become much more interested in exploring the option of applying for a Masters or PhD. The speaker gave lots of useful advice about what qualities are needed for research, including determination to finish long projects. He also suggested undertaking a summer internship and choosing a lab-based project for the final year of the degree.”
