Here's what people had to say about doing the placements:

"I felt incredibly welcomed and met so many different people. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to keep up because I didn’t have a scientific/ medical background, but I was proven to be thoroughly wrong and gained a lot of knowledge and understanding from this experience"- Hazel Mvere (A level Student)

"I highly recommend this to anyone thinking about doing it because the staff are welcoming and it gives you insight into what it is like to work in a busy medical journal"-Issy Keane (A Level/BTEC Media student)

"Everyone involved was really friendly and were keen to answer questions and give us an insight into the industry." - Daniel Fox (Biomedical Graduate)

"Although virtual, it still showed what a work environment would be like, a perfect way to learn about the working world!" - Ilana Thurgood (A Level Student)
