We survey our graduates six months after they have completed their degrees with us. Our most recent results are from 2007, 2008 and 2009 graduates. (For Data Protection reasons we cannot name the companies these students worked for):
Plant Science graduates are well equipped for a range of careers both in and outside the Life Sciences sector. The relatively low number of Plant Science graduates and the high demand for their expertise in areas such as crop engineering and biofuel research means they are extremely employable.
Life Sciences roles of recent graduates included:
- Project co-ordinator for a conservation organisation
- Graduate trainee (agriculture) for a biotechnology company
Around 67% of graduates move on to further study in the area of Life Sciences. These graduates are likely to move into a career in scientific research in the future.
Life Sciences courses undertaken by recent graduates included:
- Plant Genetics
