University student
It’s incredible to be working at an institution like this, alongside such fantastic scientists. The supervision here is outstanding and you are made to feel more like a colleague or collaborator than a supervisee. You are not only given first-class academic support, but you are helped to grow as a person, developing the skills you’ll need to succeed in the future.
