James Butler – MSc Biomedical Science graduate
After graduating with a distinction, James has already secured a PhD studentship at the University of Plymouth.
“After graduating from the MSc course I will be starting a fully-funded PhD at Plymouth, within the School of Engineering. This path opens me up to a career in academia, industry, or within the NHS.”
My choice? Plymouth
“I had previously studied for my undergraduate degree at Plymouth, so I knew I wanted to continue with my interest of infection science developed during my undergraduate research project, and I could do that by pursuing an MSc specialising in immunology.
“There is an active research community in the School of Biomedical Sciences, which I knew would provide me with the mentoring, guidance and resources to develop my research skills and run my own project.”
I liked how the MSc Biomedical Science course had central modules as well as specialist subject modules, so I could continue to build my knowledge.”
