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

Event format

This year the Bioscience Careers Day will take place over three days from Tuesday 2nd November to Thursday 4th November. Each day will be hosted by a representative organisation from our Careers Committee. With expert talks, Q&As and skills sessions, 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.

The draft programme can be found on the BCD website, and will be updated as more details are confirmed.

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 connect with talented students focused on their future careers, visit our sponsorship opportunities pages, or contact Harriet McAra at to discuss talk opportunities.


Each day's programme of talks and discussion will take place from 12:00-14:30 GMT. A detailed programme can be found on the BCD website, and will be updated as more details are confirmed.

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.
