Opportunities in Bioscience
A high quality placement brings with it a wide range of benefits and positive impacts. It provides you with the opportunity to gain experience and specific skills in your sector of choice as well as allowing you to experience the quality of work that will be required in graduate employment. You also gain a better understanding of the sector enabling you to make a more informed choice when looking for your graduate job.
The placement year is an excellent opportunity to get 'a foot in the door' with a desired company. In 2015 over 40% of all graduate jobs went to a candidate who had previous work experience with that company and the placement year is the best way to gain this experience. Lancaster students often return from their placement having been offered a graduate job for when they complete their degree.
