Highlights from Carnegie PhD Scholars’ Gathering 2019
Chloe, can you tell us why you chose your degree course? I am currently studying Applied Bioscience with Zoology. Since I was at school, I knew I wanted to study science. I initially studied Pharmacology but I quickly discovered that it wasn’t the course for me. When I came across this course, I decided to apply. I love studying the physiological adaptations and the way different organisms interact with their environment. This course has definitely put me in a better position to pursue research opportunities I am interested in.
What does the funding mean to you? I first heard about the Carnegie Trust through the university. I decided to apply for it and was thankfully successful! As a full time student, it allowed me to focus on my studies rather than having to work full time to cover fees. This definitely allowed me to keep my grades up and I am extremely grateful to have been given this opportunity!
