If your a life science undergraduate and you haven’t heard of these you really should find out fast.
These are typically the entrance point into the world of real practical science for many students. This means they act as a great source of skills/ experience, allow the application of your theoretical knowledge into practical training, open future opportunities for postgraduate studies or employment, career testing (i.e. do you like this line of work?), CV filling plus they are a source of cash for us poor students while still maintaining some of our valued summer holiday time (approx $4K for 10 weeks).
Check them out:
- UoA School of Biological Sciences
- Plant and Food Research
- UoA FMHS
- and hopefully Chiasma has some on the way as well
