Our academic events aim to be highly educational. They often focus on employability and help give students a wider appreciation of the field of Biological Sciences and related disciplines. This year you can expect presentations from the universities’ CMS ambassador on how law can be applied within the Biological Sciences, exclusive talks about diversity within Biological Sciences from proactive guest speakers, a Q+A session with previous year in industry/year abroad students, and more.
