Biopharma Skills Consortium (BSC) Placements Resources

The Biopharma Skills Consortium (BSC), which comprises seven universities from across the south-east, has launched an online tool dedicated to helping students seeking work placements and graduate employment within the life sciences industry.

The website, produced with funding from the National HE STEM programme, provides a one-stop access point to resources with links to relevant teaching materials and sources of information on other websites. There is also a range of generic information that will be of use to students and careers and placements staff supporting placements across the sciences.

Students can access advice on how to make stronger applications for work placements and employment, and will be able to improve their understanding of the industrial environment and how to make a rapid impact when starting a new job.

Dr Orla Kennedy, Associate Dean Science (Teaching and Learning), from the University of Reading, which leads the BSC, said:

"The recent High Fliers report shows just how important work placements are for securing graduate employment. This website allows students access to audio clips that provide insights into working in the bioscience sector and contains guided web links to useful web sites and training materials."

For further information, please contact the BSC administrator.
