Graduate Studies in the Sciences – Beyond the Science

Extending your education through a graduate degree in the sciences requires a long-term commitment. It also often incites questions from our peers about the state of our sanity. Despite all these sceptical questions, many of us still choose to pursue a PhD in the sciences, but do we fully understand what exactly we’re getting ourselves into? Though this may not come as a surprise, there are many things, beyond the science, that are also important in our education. Here we wish to discuss some of these additional ‘annoyances’ and why they matter.

A Year in Industry: To Apply or Not To Apply, That is the Question.

As a biomedical sciences undergrad I had lots of questions and concerns about the future.

Now I want to share those insights with you to hopefully make your options a little clearer. So if you're a student thinking about a year industry, this post is for you!
