Science careers go under the microscope at B&FC

Published on 30/03/2017 by pfi

Potential scientists will put a career in the laboratory under the microscope when they visit Blackpool and The Fylde College (B&FC) for a taster evening.

The two events in April will give people of all ages the opportunity to undertake experiments and discover what’s involved in doing a Lancaster University Human Bioscience or Marine Biology degree at B&FC – and the exciting careers which could follow.

Samuel Bentley, Curriculum Manager for Science HE & FE at B&FC, said:

“I’m really looking forward to hosting these events in our laboratories at the University Centre.

“People will be able to find out information about the different career opportunities available after studying for a degree with us, from forensic science to coastal conservation.

“They’ll be able to get hands-on to see if these career areas are for them by taking part in experiments, including dissection and chemical analysis.

“Everyone is welcome at these events, whether a school or college-leaver – or someone who might be considering a change of career.

“We’re really proud of what we offer here at B&FC and I can’t wait to show people the excellent facilities and cutting-edge equipment which ensure our students are ready for a variety of roles in industry as soon as they graduate.”

Potential students will also hear about the B&FC Advantage programme, which offers a range of benefits including up to £500 towards the cost of study, small study groups and strong employer links.

B&FC offers more than 60 degrees accredited by long-standing partner, Lancaster University, ranked in the top 10 of universities in the UK - including Human Bioscience and Marine Biology.

The taster events will take place at B&FC’s University Centre on Park Road, Blackpool, between 4.30pm and 6pm on 6 and 25 April. No booking is necessary and all are welcome to attend.
