Kirsty McCallum, 23, a 2017 graduate of the University’s Biomedical Science programme with First Class Honours is now working on her PhD at UWS using the skills she learned from her undergraduate degree to help find ways to better understand and alleviate the impact of lung disease.
Kirsty said: “I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of teaching at UWS. My lecturers motivated me to work hard and become more confident in my abilities. During the degree I undertook a placement as a laboratory technician which developed my independent thinking skills and intuition, both of which are incredibly important to my current work.”
UWS’s life sciences programmes have been developed in collaboration with industrial and educational partners – this input along with the University’s extensive research and consultancy expertise helps to positively shape students’ learning experiences, putting them in an enviable position when entering the job market.
