Bryony Whitten


Bryony Whitten, our Biological Sciences graduate, worked at a Panda Breeding Centre in China funded through our work experience scheme. 

Bryony, a 3rd year Biological Sciences (Zoology) student graduating this summer, was supported by funding from the University to work at the Panda Breeding and Research Centre in Sichuan, China. Bryony was able to experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity before commencing her third year of study, using the experience to inform her final year studies and achieve a 1st class degree.

“My internship will set me apart when applying for work or graduate positions as I have gained hands-on practical experience with exotic animals. It was for a very prestigious organisation that has already been very successful towards attaining its goal of reproducing panda cubs. My experience in such a diverse country with very different cultural values shows that I can adapt to various situations and that I will be flexible in multicultural environments”
