The School aimed to increase numbers of UG students gaining direct experience of science careers in four ways: summer internships, part-time Research Assistants, professional placement years and attendance at research conferences. Graduates of the summer internship scheme also undertook doctoral research with the School. Approximately one quarter of PG research studentships have been awarded to School graduates since 2013.
