Biomedical Science Alumni on Employability

Dr Tselepis and Dr Leadbeater, (Senior Lecturers in Biomedical Science) at the RSB’s Degree Accreditation Awards, House of Commons, 10 May 2017.

Biomedical Science alumni have recently featured in a series of films profiling their careers since graduating from the course.

From Jess Tierney (2015) who works as an Account Manager at Random42 Scientific Communications to Dr Lisa Hill (2010), a Research Fellow at the Institution of Inflammation and Ageing, University of Birmingham, these films hope to highlight the breadth of careers available to current and prospective students once gradating.

The programme was accredited by the Royal Society of Biology in April and the enterprise module developed with RB and Careers Network’s B-Enterprising Team was highlighted as an area of excellence.

Programme Director, Dr Chris Tselepis, says that “this module has been truly transformative for our students, providing them with a unique skill set and knowledge base. Engaging with this module has allowed students to widen their horizons and will I’m sure make them highly attractive to employers in the life sciences and the business sector as a whole.”

The accreditation is great news for graduates who will receive one year of free membership of the Royal Society of Biology at Associate level. This will open up networks at a crucial time when applying for jobs.
