Our flagship event for undergraduates studying for a biological degree was held on Saturday 14th October 2017 at King's College London


Building on the success of previous careers conferences, last year's Bioscience Careers Festival was the single biggest event in the Royal Society of Biology's history. It welcomed 500 students from across the UK and was coordinated by the Society's Careers Committee.

What happened at our careers day?

  • Talks from experts in the field about the variety of careers for bioscience grads
  • Mock interviews to sharpen your technique for future employers
  • An exhibition with representatives from a variety of top organisations
  • Tours of the Gordon Museum
  • Networking with bioscience professionals and other students from across the UK

Who attended?

This event was aimed at undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students. Careers advisors and school students considering a bioscience degree were also very welcome.
