Professional Internships for PhD Studies (PIPS) Opportunities

You will undertake placement during your second or third year. This will be a full-time three month placement or a part-time equivalent

PIPS will give you as a student the opportunity to work within a professional non-research related area.  Your placement will allow you to see first-hand how a particular employment sector functions and what skills you as an employee have or would need to develop to thrive in such an environment.

As a researcher, you will gain many transferable skills and it is important to put these into context. Undertaking an placement will allow you to see how you can use these skills in the working world and use them to boost your employability.
This blog shows details of PIPS currently available and those previously advertised through South West Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (SWBio DTP).
