Find out about the variety of careers open to bioscience students at the annual Royal Society of Biology Bioscience Careers Day (BCD), taking place this year online.

Event format

This year the Bioscience Careers Day will take place over five days from Monday 2nd November to Friday 6th November. Each day is themed around an area of the biosciences, hosted by a representative organisation from our Careers Committee. With expert talks, Q&As and CV and interview tips, each day is designed to enhance your knowledge of the variety of careers available to bioscience graduates. There will also be opportunities to chat with bioscience professionals and other students from across the UK.


Monday - Clinical Sciences Day
Tuesday - Environmental Sciences Day
Wednesday - Careers in Addressing Global Challenges
Thursday - Careers in Communication for Bioscientists
Friday - Employability Skills for Bioscientists

Further information on talk titles and speakers will be available on this page in due course.

Who can attend?

BCD is aimed at undergraduate and Master's students. PhD students, postdocs, careers advisors and school/ college students considering a bioscience degree are also very welcome. Employers, if you would like to meet talented students focused on their future careers, contact Harriet McAra at and find out about our talk opportunities.


Each day's programme of talks and discussion will take place from 10:00-12:00. A detailed programme will be available to download shortly. We've had talks on careers in industry, science communication, publishing, academia, ecology, patent law, teaching and more at past events. Download top presentations from past events.
