Learning & Development: Panellist for Careers Event, University of Bath
The University of Bath are holding an ‘Alternative Careers in Science’ panel event taking place on Thursday 16th November (6.30-8pm).

We will ask each panellist to speak for about 10 minutes and the evening will end with a Q&A session. The event will be held on campus in Bath and the audience would be Undergraduate and Postgraduate students.
